Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dick has some very strong language, including puns relating to the president's first name and a whispered explanation of the original meaning of "Deep Throat." Betsy's brother is a heavy drug user who is perpetually stoned, and some of his marijuana makes its way into the cookies the girls make for the president.

Is It Any Good?
The better you remember the early '70s, the more you will enjoy this very funny movie and revisiting the worst hair and clothes decade of the century. Like Forrest Gump, the girls turn out to be responsible for many of the best-remembered historical details of the era. Most of the performances are terrific. Saul Rubinek is a stand-out as Henry Kissinger, and Dan Hedaya is sensational as Richard Nixon -- needy, paranoid, and, in an hilarious dream sequence, positively endearing.
Some teens will enjoy DICK even without a grounding in the history, but they will enjoy it more if they watch All the President's Men first (Bruce McCulloch does a fine job parodying not just Carl Bernstein but also Dustin Hoffman playing Carl Bernstein).
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.
