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.

Highly recommend

I think this movie is perfectly fine for kids 12 and older as long as the scene with vulgar language and putting a woman in an incredibly uncomfortable, potentially threatening situation are explained in a way that can teach your children what is unacceptable behavior and why it’s unacceptable. I think it’s a beautiful movie that can help people feel the courage to walk away from toxic situations and relationships and give people hope that there is something much better out there for them. This movie is also not a stereotypical lgbtq+ film with the same tired tropes. I really appreciate that it includes an lgbtq+ dynamic where the conflict was something unrelated to their sexuality for once. I think it’s important for kids to see more media like this for that very reason. Apart from that, the message was very powerful in the sense of combatting codependent relationships and finding the courage and help to leave toxic situations. One character notices some blatantly narcissistic and emotionally abusive behavior and does her best to help another character navigate out of that. Highly recommend this movie.

Horrendous

We made the mistake of taking our 13 year old and I have never felt so uncomfortable watching a film, how this is a 12A rating I will never know! We did talk and laugh about it, but made my skin crawl at hot tub scene when sexual references made, not for kids!
