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.

Not for Anyone

I truly regret watching this film. The way it has been made is so direct , leading us right into lesbian love of teenagers with obvious sexual symbols like a girl in red arriving on a white horse - oh my - unbelievable. Such junk . It mocks Christianity and depicts faith in a very inappropriate way and the whole story is just cheesy.

This title has:

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