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.

Great movie but not so okay for younge kids

It goes into some iffy topics but if your child is mature enough to handle it it'll be okay. It is a great movie!

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much swearing

NOT Teen Friendly!

This film is not for children of any age, including teenagers. The film portrays selfish and irresponsible sexual behavior as being OK, and one of the main characters resorts to fraud to bring about a supposedly 'happy ending'. Of couse, it has some of the rough, crude and profane language all to common in 'adult' movies. This movie attempts to appeal to peoples' selfishness and a fantasy of 'anything is OK to get what you want.'

This title has:

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