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.

Packed with stereotypes and tired jokes

This movie could be educational if used to explore all of the stereotypes and racist overtones it presents, for example in an intercultural communication class. Among others, the Spiritual “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve seen” is made fun of in a karaoke scene where a minoritized individual with a non-standard accent sings it.

Ehhhh Okay

I think that this movie was OK. One seen of them shown in bed, and earlier he screams out onto the street, I wanna have sex with you. Genevieve smiles to much, it's a very predictable movie but I would give it a try. Not something I will rewatch, though

This title has:

Too much sex
