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.

Community Reviews

age 12+

Raunchier than the first one

This movie had more cursing, more sexual content, and more violence than the first movie, so I'm but sure how or why Common Sense Media rated this one for 10 years and the first one for 11. This is one to hold off on until around 12.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 13+

Still funny

In what universe is this ok for age 10/ 11? Getting a “full-on robot chubby” and trying to physically force women to “put out”? The hell scenes: also iffy for that age group, IMO. That said, my family of 4 including 16- and 13-year-old boys laughed out loud throughout. This sequel made so much less sense than the original. Just go with it. Most of the humor spoke to us. Death played by William Sadler makes the movie. A lighthearted, don’t-think-too-much flick.
