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.

Funny but for older kids

I thought this movie was very funny however had multiple references to sex. The woman said they "made love" and the man talked about how he was in the shower. The woman was shown unbuttoning her shirt and the man said she took his clothes and was left in only a bathrobe. It is very entertaining especially with the funny surprise at the end.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
