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.

Powerful movie, great for mature kids

This movie is very educational towards kids. Lots of messages about perseverance, power, and standing up for yourself. Children should watch the film from a young age (10-11) so they remember all these great and important messages. You would expect some tension, but surprisingly there's nothing too gory that an 8 year old can't handle: Things thrown on the stage, and the host threatened with a gun but it is supposed to be "fake" in the film. Some slapping, but no injuries. Some Language, mostly name calling "bloody" and a use of "hell", but its nothing to worry about. Parents, if you decide to watch this film with your tweens or younger teens, its better to be there, so you can explain what is right and what is not right. There's also some sexist jokes and objectifying others, which may be confusing for young kids. I say that Misbehavior, is an iffy choice for children under 12 years old, and say it is a 4/5 rating film.
