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.

Great for adults, not for kids!

I think this is a great movie for adults but for kids under 14, I don't think its appropriate. The language in this movie is my main concern. Sh*t is said more then 32 times, Bullsh*t is said at least 5, A**hole is said twice, A** is said twice, Bast*rd is said once, D*ckhead is said once, B*tch is said at least six times, Jesus Chr*st is used and the mother of all swear words the F word is used once. There is also talk about a females nipples and talk of a penis. There was a few highlights in this movie. The fact that a strainger would be willing to go out of his way to help someone hes never even met. It kinda makes you wonder if someone would actually be willing to do this for someone else. I think its best for parents to wait till the kids are at least 14 to view this movie because of the language and the violence.
