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.

Probably one of the worst movies ever

This was a complete waste of time. Stupid plot. Bad acting. Weak storyline. DON’T waste your time.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 15+

Avoid with young kids.

This is NOT suitable for children under 15 in my opinion. We turned it off after 25 minutes as in that time we'd heard several profanities. Including an f word. (That was the last straw). Can't really rate it as we didn't get that far.
