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.

One scene takes the film over the line as far as being for kids

There are bits that dance along the line of suitability for kids like the nude male butts and use of the word hell. But there's a scene where a native woman pops up from below the screen, followed by a man. The position her head is in is so far down from the male, it's hard to argue it's implying anything other than oral sex. Pretty gross
