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.

Fun Slow-Burning Comedy

This movie slowly relishes in the oddity of the actual event. The movie is mostly acceptable. The major thing to watch out for is the use of F**k (x3) by one of the characters - However, even then the expletive used quietly under breath and is easily missed.
