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.

Community Reviews

age 18+

Offensively horrible

The review says the redeeming quality is that it shows learning disabilities. NO! As soon as the character is diagnosed, the "solution" is to literally BEAT him until he gets the answers correct. You read that correctly, physical beatings and shouting at him until somehow he gets smarter. Seriously Common Sense Media, how can you give this anything over 1 star??

This title has:

Too much violence
age 18+

Not PG-14

Shows vibrators, talks about butt sex, extremely foul language, and sexual talk. Adult themes and situations. NOT for kids, not for teens, 18+ ONLY!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
