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.

Community Reviews

age 18+

Fun and inappropriate

Agree with the reviews, this movie has a lot that you wouldn’t want to see with your kids. It was sweet, funny, and entertaining but definitely not realistic. It reversed a lot of gender stereotypes typically seen in movies and that was refreshing.

This title has:

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 16+

F bombs galore, but otherwise funny

There a ridiculous number of unnecessary “f” bombs in this movie.. advice to the writers- so many gets monotonous and ineffective. Premise is funny, characters are solid. Like seeing a woman president! Well acted. Yes, some scenes are more mature. Subject matter would not even be interesting to children under 15.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
