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.

Creepy as Heck!

I saw this in a restaurant a few years back, and the imagery haunted me. Here's what little creepy or disturbing parts I can remember: a woman's "arm flab" going all the way down to the floor (cartoon sequence) a cyclops (computer animated or puppet, much creepier than what's seen in kiddy shows); Medusa (live-action); a man's head going into his body like a turtle does (live-action) Besides the imagery, the storyline itself is creepy. A cartoon character trying to take over his artist? Good grief! Do your eyes and brain a hee-yuge favor; watch something else. (P.S., sorry if some details are off)

Too much violence

Monkey bone review..

I enjoyed it's creative aspect.. On the other hand,the film does have plenty of sexual humor and it's bits of adult content.. Other than that, don't let this film fool you with the way it looks.. Otherwise, Great film for older teenagers and adults..
