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.

Really funny, but wait until your kids are teenagers

Really funny movie, but this was an instance of showing my kids a movie and wishing later that I had waited another couple years. I knew going in that there were a ton of sexual references, but it was worse than I remembered. It's not like my kids (13 and 11) are scarred as a result, but I probably should have waited a little longer.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
