Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is some strong language and some raw humor. Furthermore, the movie departs from Hollywood tradition in leaving the hero unrepentant and in possession of the stolen jewel.

Is It Any Good?
What we have here is a cross between Beverly Hills Cop and Sister Act, your basic street-smart-guy-who-keeps-it-real-showing-the-desk-jockeys-a-thingor-two type plot. There are two versions of this plot, with or without hugging. Anyone who expects that Lawrence's character will come out of the experience a better person is more gullible than the cops who decide that he's so good he must be from Internal Affairs or the FBI.
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.
