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.

Not for the Young Kiddies

It's a really good psychological thriller. You know the good feeling you get when you know a police officer lives in your neighborhood? The Mattsons felt that way until their badge wearing next-door neighbor starts to lose his grip and starts making their lives a living Hell.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
