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.

Excellent time-travel movie

Engaging dialogue and very good acting, tight mind-bending plot. The best time-travel movie I have ever seen! One brief scene of two adults having sex, a few bad words, violence is minimal. Definitely would recommend to sci-fi fans. A complex plot which may take a couple of viewings to fully grasp it. My favorite sci-fi movie after The Matrix. Two thumbs way up!

Great Mind Warp Movie....a Time Travel Classic

There is only one scene, which I believe if they left it out this could be rated PG-13. There is some language. One scene where a man and a woman are having sex with him standing up and her on top of a desk and they are fully clothed from what i remember. After that....completely harmless. I think kids 12 and under might not understand the concepts of the movie and would probably be bored by it. It is a wonderful movie that poses the timeless question...which one comes first the chicken or the egg? Brilliant idea...a true Sci Fi great!
