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.

CSM is on the nose with 17+

Sexual content is pretty strong. From a group sex scene to BJ lessons, the sexual content is not something my 14yo should watch, let alone a 12yo as others have suggested. GREAT movie and so funny! But feeling uncomfortable with kids who are too young in the room takes away all the enjoyment.
