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.

Too much sex

Funny as hell

While the movie does not set good examples about drugs and alcohol and how to be responsible with them. It does have a lot of funny wise crack jokes. So if you are looking for a laugh I would suggest this movie.

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
