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.

Why 18 and up?

I know, 18 and up sounds insane for this movie. I have a reason. There is one scene where the girl is in the bath and when the kids try to look at her one can rather clearly see her chest through the bubbles, there is little left to the imagination. After this scene, they constantly refer to her by a derogative term that refers to her chest. That first part--what the viewer sees--is why I can't in good conscience mark this as for kids. What were they thinking? And how, honestly, did Common Sense miss this, and the derogative term? Further, there is a scene where Christopher Lee, who is smitten with the old nurse and she him, is hit in the groin by a cricket ball. She then--this time nothing is shown--opens his pants up and makes an exclamation that could be taken as innuendo. Finally, the movie is a waste of time at any rate. Boring story--could have been good, but ruined with the above material and the script. We're always on the look out for good movies. I'm not too persnickety if there is some swearing and violence (depending on ages of course), but again, this kind of thing, with the bath, that I've noted in this review, simply should not be in a kids' movie. We finally just gave up on it, never finishing it. We kept thinking, "What's going to come next that we don't want to see or hear?"

This title has:

Too much sex
