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.

Probably not suitable for toddlers, but VERY funny to watch!

This is one of the best movies that ever makes me laugh without fail. Scenes including the robber being defeated and the mum's co-worker being caught in a photocopier and her facial expressions showing up on the photocopied pieces of paper - they give me a right giggle!

This title has:

Too much sex

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
