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.

Fast forward 30 minutes into the movie where one of the sexy bandits gestures towards Pee-Wee by grabbing her breast and then calls in a group of strippers who have a pillow fight with the bandits and trash a hotel room. I assume they were strippers because they were dressed as cops and told the girls they're under arrest for "being too hot" and then ripped off all of their clothes. If this is ok with you then you'll love this movie! But I can tell you my 9 year old was confused and disturbed and said she wished she had never seen that. One star for sexualizing children.

I like it but has some inappropriate stuff

I think this should be a 9+ because I think it has some sex references and has some material kids might not be able to see but I think it is still a kids film because I mean it is Pee Wee he is a nice and friendly character but the film has some inappropriate stuff like knifes, guns i think, and some bad language like bad arse and stuff like that.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
