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.

Most of the movie is mild language (shut up, stupid, pervert, ect ). However, the dad does say "damn" and Kevin calls the bad guys "asses".

Great movie

There isn't too much violence and it is safe for 7 and up. There are really good positive messages and it was hilarious. There is only one violent scene in which the kid is throwing bricks on the robbers. But they don't get too badly hurt. Otherwise there is no violence. It is a great family movie. It is very funny. The main charecter in this story is a great role model.
