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.

Good Movie but not for kids under 16

PG rating is very misleading. Words $hit and a$$ were used several times during the movie. Discussion of Sexual intercourse and orgasm was brought up twice. Mention of man's genitalia and a couple were shown in bed implying that they just had sex. Several scenes of couple kissing on lips and one long French kiss. Kind f shocked really to see MPAA gave it a rating of PG.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 7+

Very touching

A very good movie although very touching makes you want to cry but a good happy cry.

This title has:

Great messages
