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.

If you could go back to 2015?

Lots of classic timey wimney, cursing, product placement, bullying, some accidents, and an end of the World concert that seems possible as we get more and more no known cured diseases and extreme heatwaves.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 12+

A good idea for a movie but not well made

There is lots of swearing about 2 f words (one is mumbled) multiple f word stand ins like frickin and freakin, and about 50 uses of the s word, and also brief sexual content

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
