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.

Boy focused not animals

Driving without license. Young teens drooling over a man who is clearly over 18 with his shirt off sweating in the sun working. The scene is set in slower motion with a softened lighting to increase the "sexiness" of the man. The girls are made to be stereotyped teens oogling over a "hot" guy so much that the stumble over their words. The girls fight over this man and try to see who wins to get the man. Heavy flirting. Meanwhile, he is the camp counselor! At the end the Doolittle girl has a kissing scene with her camp counselor. I am conservative but come one, where is the dr. Dolittle animal theme. Teen boy movie for girls. If your a not conservative on teen romance movies/teens kissing then it would be an okay movie. Everyone's different but I would want to know if the things I listed were in a movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
