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.

Misleading preview! NOT a comedy! ZERO humor!

Way too many swear words to even count. Adult situations like 3-somes, smoking pot, going to murder someone with a pickax, suicide, how a military soldier "takes the easy way out" and the entire movie the main charter is just trying to get laid and constantly drinking whiskey from the bottle.

Very Good Film!!

I went to my local cinemas to view this film. I viewed it with my 13 year old son. We thoroughly enjoyed it, although there is few mild words, nothing too bad! Would recommend this film, it was quiet enjoyable!! In fact I will be taking my son again, accompanied by his friends. Thankyou for this film!! 😁
