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.

Wow, what a film!

As a Christian man, I cannot recommend this film, too much provocative imagery. However, as a man, seeing Ja Rule do the things he did in in this film really stirred something deep inside of me. Very sultry stuff, would definitely recommend

Too much talk about sex and sexual messages

Surprised it was 4 out of 5 stars for family friendly by “plugged in”. Very disappointing. Not family friendly from a Christian view point. Good message but it didn’t need all the sex talk and provocative dressing. Then the Christian girl was ok with going to a bar ??? They even filmed her in a dress from her legs up very slowly to give her that “sexy” look. Really ?? That’s Godly ?? Very poor taste. The movie could have been done better.
