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.

Everybody Should Watch This Movie

I think this movie sets a great example for teens, maybe not so much the violence, but the way of thinking. Frank is a very inspiring person who is simply fed up with the stupidity and general rudeness of the world. His message is that everybody should just be nice to one another.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
