Let's not encourage kids to be overtly sexual!

Too racy for kids

There is a fair amount of swearing, scantly dressed women in some scenes and a pretty heavy make-out scene where the man is wearing only a towel. I wanted to show it to my 7th and 8th grade students after we did a unit on Latin dance, but I think it is too much for them.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Children may not notice the plot's creakiness, and all audiences will be beguiled by the Latin dancing and the joy it brings to the dancers.

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.
