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.

To explicit

To much nudity. Uncalled for . Not worth it at all.

An excellent romantic film with perfect balance of love, sexuality and drama!

Love & Other Drugs is an excellent romantic film from the hands of an genius filmmaker. This film will make you cheer and cry a lot. If your children really wants to see an romantic film that's aimed for adults that has real life problems, show them this film! Yes, there are some bad language, using of drugs (viagra) and 1 or 2 shots of Anne Hathaway's breasts. But that's really not the point of this film. The film has role models that kids can look up too. And it demonstrates true love like no other film that came out in this decade. Definelitly check it out with your family to learn something real about relationships.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
