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.

Out of touch and shallow jokes

The 2 main actors of the movie frankly are pretty terrible people, no one to look up to. Both have unreasonable expectations of marriage and what it means to be a partner to someone, which is presented in the movie through various sexist and quite passé modes of thinking (Ashton asks Britney Murphy to name everyone she has slept with, American-centric thinking being "correct" and European countries being "backward") The comedy isn't out there enough to be absurd, therefore comes off as offensive and paints the 2 characters as very flat shallow people, almost childlike.
age 9+

Fine

Fine, boring start but it begins to get good when they go on the honeymoon.
