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.

Crass and sexist

Repeated 'F' words, sexist comments about mothers, body shaming - all in 1 movie.

Worst. Movie. Ever

I was an extra in this movie, and that may be the only reason I bothered seeing it. Totally forgettable. May be the only movie I have ever watched where I do not remember a thing about it. My take, like it says, don't bother.

Too much swearing
