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.

A Decent Film - At Best

The only reason I really went to see this movie was because of Owen Wilson. He's good in the movie, but not in top form a la Shanghai Noon, The Royal Tenenbaums, or Bottle Rocket. Overall it's a pretty mediocre and harmless movie. The most objectionable part, from my perspective, was that the female lead (who's only real job in the movie is to be good-looking) is far too skinny to be sensibly considered beautiful. She's the type of woman that encourages anorexia in girls and that men need to be retrained to think is unheathily skinny rather than attractive.
