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.

Definitely not for Children... A lot of people say the movie is dumb, or unfunny, or offensive. I tell those people to stick it. This is a pretty funny movie. You just need to be able to appreciate the humor behind it. Now, if anybody gets shocked or offended, please for the love of God, do the right thing and SHUT YOUR TRAP! Nobody cares if you get offended! If you get offended by the material... DON'T WATCH IT YOU DIP! Plain and simple.
