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.

Gratuitous female nudity

The opening scene shows a totally naked woman wandering around a hotel room. We see EVERYTHING (breasts including nipples, buttocks as she bends over towards the camera, and even her vagina). Don't bother.

Too much sex
age 18+

Full frontal gratuitous female nudity from the first second!

Unfortunately it made very uncomfortable viewing with family. Opening scene is a totally naked woman in a hotel room for several minutes and we were all wondering when the scene would end and if another one would crop up soon, so gradually members of family left the room, so never even got to the 30 minute mark!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
