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.

Incomplete review

I was very disappointed at the Common Sense Media review for this movie. It is incomplete as there is a lot of language and sexual scenes with kissing and inferences present in this movie, but they did not indicate that. I hope that they complete the review. It is a great movie and worth watching for a lot of families, but they need to be aware of what all is in the movie.
