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 Rich guy who wants to be poor?

The film Itself had a wonderful plot.. Besides the Drug use and the sexual references.. This Film is a great Choice for mature teenagers 14 and up.. On the other hand, This film is Not intended for younger viewer due to some Mature suggestive content.. Otherwise, Parents should use judgement before letting their young children watch this film..

Correction!

This is an awesome movie! You know I always get mad when I take my kids to watch a movie and there are sex and nudity scenes and I searched for review and it fails to mention that....this movie I am reading about all the sex! I see none! They mention it but you see no sex or hear sex! Where in the work are you people seeing this! I was impressed with the lack of cuss words and lack of sex! Awesome movie!
