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.

Not my cup of tea...

I didn't enjoy this film very much at all, which was a letdown because I was really looking forward to it as I love thrillers, just not this type. It starts off promising but gets dull pretty fast, not enough action. I couldn't seem to get into it. It's fairly violent with quite a bit of sexual content (two sex scenes - one with brief nudity), and the language is somewhat strong with common uses of the "f" word, sh*t, b*tch, [email protected], hell...etc. There is drinking throughout. Absolutely not recommended for kids under 16!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
