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.

Funny movie, DEFINITELY NOT for kids.

The movie is great for older audiences such as adults and teens! There’s a lot of adult humor and substitution of cussing such as “holy spit” and “mother flea” also. I certainly don’t believe it’s for kids simply because, well, it’s not. There’s a lot of sexual undertone/adult jokes, wayyy too much for a 10-12 year old to hear or see. There’s even a club scene where the women have thongs and bras on, and even women dancing by themselves in a spotlight. If you want to show this movie to your children, please be warned and watch it first! There’s certainly some choice scenes that need to be skipped. Other than that, it’s a great movie.

It's not about you (parents)

I only signed up for an account to point out when parent have a stick up their butts about good movies. Which this one is great for promoting hygiene and a healthy lifestyle. Oh its gross? Oh there are sexual references? Oh the science isn't exact? It's a movie, just enjoy and let your kids be kids. We didn't need any of this to watch movies when we were kids.
