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 14+

Very good film. Classic style.

David Fincher. Violence is minimal. An implied violent event. A shown “violent” event in which someone gets injured nongraphically. Some verbal fighting. Language: About 5 or so F bombs. The GD word is used few times. And more minor swearing is occasional. Sex: Some talk of sex. Not too graphic. And about 10-15 minutes in a topless woman with pastors on is shown off and on throughout a scene. Consumption: Main character is an alcoholic. People are shown drinking a lot. Some people are shown drunk. People are shown almost harmed by alcohol. Cigarettes are smoking. Extra: Nothing much. No real positive role models or messages or anything. Hollywood business is shown in full view. Politics are a huge subject here.

This title has:

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