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.

Head Being Violently Crushed on Screen

there is a scene where without warning, a rope carrying a huge block of ice snaps, resulting in the corner of it smashing the head of a worker into the ground, making it explode and leaving him dead on the floor. this traumatized me when i watched it in theater 9 years ago :( it was supposed to be funny. not suitable for kids or anybody with a pure heart

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
