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.

Not for kids & most adults

Great flick, Annette is stunning and wonderful, Irons is Irons. But not a kid flick, nor a teenager flick, nor a chick flick. This is serious stuff for adults with taste and a keen sense of irony.
