Did we miss something on diversity?

It was an awesome movie! I would recommend watching it through before letting your kids watch it, there is some brief nudity, it shows a woman's B**bs and a mans p*n*s, and there is also a scene where they smoke weed. Besides that stuff, it's pretty appropriate besides some swearing. Andy Samberg plays a hilarious role, I definitely recommend it for Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans!

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
age 17+

So much potential...

Lonely Island for 90 minutes. This film has a lot of promise and has some great bits and even better musicians lending their sense of humor and screen time for this film. But there always seems to be an underlying homophobic moment which is unfortunate. It also just doesn't seem to have enough glue to carry it all the way through. But it is one hell of a sophomoric ride.
