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.

Good story but not great for kids

Agatha Christie is a great writer and I have enjoyed her books. The story Death on the Nile is an entertaining and good story, but Hollywood has taken too much liberty with the story and has made it inappropriate. There are a number of sexually charged scenes and sexual innuendos in this movie. I took my 14-year-old son to see the movie after finding out the scenes that we need to be careful of. He played games on his phone during the risqué scenes, and I was careful, but it still left a bad taste in my mouth. I am going to be reading the book to get the real story. I would suggest waiting for this movie to come out on VidAngel and watching it with filters.

Not great!

I watched this with my 18 year old daughter. We both thought it was a bit disappointing, having enjoyed Death on the Orient Express. My son,13, also wanted to see it but I was very glad he didn't come with us as there is quite a lot of sexualised "dancing".
