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.

So problematic omg

So problematic tf. Pick almost any issue that should not be made light of or joked about, and this film hits on it. Anti-semitism, homophobia, revenge porn, mocking people with disabilities or speech impediments, a ridiculous amount of paedophilic comments from adults and sexualised shots, all wrapped up in a terrible plot with some of the worst acting I've ever seen, glorifying bullying people, including Literally Drugging A Girl???? Not to mention all the references and dialogue are so painfully obviously written by a middle aged man cringily trying to Relate To The Kids.
