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.

Moronic movie

Absolutely ridiculous movie. The movie is tedious to watch because it is so far fetched that it doesn't draw you in. The main character doesn't have any appealing qualities and doesn't improve through his experiences. There were a couple of laughs to be had but they didn't make up for the ridiculousness of the film. You lose brain cells watching it. Don't waste your time.

Violence: Gulliver gets into a fist fight with a giant robot, etc. Sex: A couple of exchanged kisses, a man teaches another how to flirt Language: a man is called a lame-a*s, then he is tricked into calling himself one, not knowing what it meant. Damn, etc.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
