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.

First review! Pointless

Not good for any age to watch!

I watched this movie because the good actors attracted my attaention and somewhere someone told me it was a good movie! I felt trapped watching it. I wanted to finish it hoping that somewhere there will be some good lesson or maybe a better ending. Man, it went from bad to worse. I felt sick afterwards. If i want my teenagers to see a really sick bunch of characters, while teaching them how to not treat your spouse, I would choose this movie!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
