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.

Really Good, Really Complicated

The movie was really good but I had to read extra information online as an adult. It’s a fun film with great positive role models and messages. As it is on a stage the violence isn’t too strong but we do see guns (gunshots in the background heard). As for se t stuff we so no sex, but strong passionate kisses and lyrics in songs that include love/sex. There is some infrequent strong language (« f—k » one and « s—t » several times. Also « pr—k » ect. ) Just remember parents really good really complicated.

Guard your children!

I was appalled with the high levels of sexual content, exessive drinking and swearing, not to mention the suggestive refrences! Dont let your younger children watch!
