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.

age 13+
This is a story of an uptight, almost neurotic news reporter who seems to have everything that society deems as successful-- on the high end of the corporate ladder, a fiance, and financial stability. She runs into a psychic one day who tells her that she will die in a short amount of time and she has some sort of rebirth. The ultimate message of the movie is to live your life to the fullest and take risks. You never know, you might have been living your life the way you THOUGHT you wanted it, not the way that will make you the happiest.

Not much to say

Basically I was dumbfounded by this movie. All I can say is - don't.
