Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fabulous Zellweger, lots of smoking.

How could someone look into Renée Zellweger's big, beautiful eyes and not be immediately charmed by her? Sure, there is a lot of swearing (particularly the F word, a lot), lots of drinking and chain smoking, and sex. But if you can see past all that, you'll find a great, truly hilarious comedy , led by a great leading lady.
