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.

age 15+

Dull movie with uncomfortable sexual references.

The movie is a little slow but has some good parts. There was some objectionable language. The biggest issue was the sexuality. There is two scenes where anal sex is discussed although not in graphic terms. This may be uncomfortable to watch with kids in their early teens. The deleted scenes on the disc feature several scenes that make this particular topic even more uncomfortable.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
