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.

Amusing (even to me as an adult) but terrible underlying themes

If you are in your late teens, maybe you get these things are hyperboles and that it is a twist on the Cinderella story? In some ways, it is an improvement over the fairy tale. I did cringe around the acceptance of casual sex -- especially the terms (hump and dump - yikes!) but an older teen would (should?) be aware of this. Many things made me cringe. I didn't watch a lot of movies with my daughter when she was a teenager. This would have been one that would have been amusing enough and allow for lighthearted discussions around some issues. I do have to say that Mandie's house was stunning -- especially as one on the other side of the tracks. Is that Hollywood's idea of the "have nots"? WOW!!
