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.

Hollywood filthy crap...again!

The storyline is scattered and the whole movie is rather boring. The acting is subpar and the whole movie seems to be more along the lines of a B film. There are questionable scenes throughout the movie and the sex scene is explicit! This movie should not have a PG-13 rating. It should have had an R rating. I wish I had read the reviews before having started to watch this trash called Mansfield Park.

This title has:

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