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.

Underrated Masterpiece

This movie is great for teens! It shows usual stuff you'd see in hood culture ( violence, drugs, and profanity ) but it shows a great turn for the great or good. I highly suggest it for all families with teens

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
