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.

Horrible movie

The mother was awful and had constant questionable behavior. I felt so sorry for her neglected daughter. A character in the movie was a victim of domestic violence and the film did NOTHING to address it. They ignored & minimized it which is beyond sad & deplorable.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Rate from opinion !

I think girl in progress sends a positive message to viewers , but has sexual content so I'd stick to the rating or watch it before you let someone under 13 watch it .

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
