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.

Wait till there a little older

With a movie about steeling and the bad guys are good and the good guys are bad, I can't see this movie being anygood for kids under 13. I found the language even a bit much in this movie: with use of sh*t used 6 times, b*tch used twice, bast*rd used twice and f*ck used once. Also a man can be seen smoking out of a hooka and people are seen drinking whiskey and beer. Although there is no nudity in one scene the main women charater is in bed naked, nothing but her bare back and cleavage can be seen. With a PG-13 rating I still say wait till the kids are at least 14.

Quite average...

Entrapment is a decent thriller that doesn't stink, but it doesn't accomplish much of anything either. Everything in the movie ranges from slightly below average to average, and you shouldn't go out if your way to see it. The good news is that there isn't much to object to in it. The violence is very mild and consists of more flat-out action (chases, stunts) than definition violence. There is a sizeable amount if language including one f word and several uses of "b--ch", but other than that it's mild. Zeta-jones lies naked in bed to seduce Connery, (nothing is shown), but he refuses to "get personal."
