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.

Disordered eating

The movie portrays disordered eating. Water and exlax is the pre prom diet that the skinny popular girls suggest. They don’t eat at lunch time either. If this is a trigger for your family, there are several throwing up in the toilet scenes.
