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.

Gratuitous nudity, sex and violence

Definitely not for kids, teens, ......or adults. Every female role in this movie is either a sex object, or a sexual victim of trafficking.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Witty and Hilarious

Great show! I wouldn’t recommend to anyone under the age of 17 as there is sex and nudity.

Too much sex
