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.

Love the movie not for kids.

I personally love the movie, but I would never let my kid watch it. A lot of sex references, a good amount of swearing, but as somebody else mentioned very early on in the movie he tells a kid his parents are Santa Claus.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Heads up - Spills the beans on Santa

This is not a kids movie. Definitely adult based humor and story line. The biggest thing for me as a parent is that this movie tells the truth about Santa.
