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.

Signed up just to write this review! Don't bother!

I would give this zero stars if I could! I cannot believe that this is marketed as a kid movie! Way too many sexual references, talk about sex, alcohol use in the beginning by the camp counselors and tons of bad words. Lasted about 20 minutes hoping it would get better, but finally gave up and turned it off. Don't bother. I'm disgusted this is for kids.

Wow. Had to shut this movie off after about 15 minutes. Should have checked here first. Definitely not appropriate for anyone under the age of at least 16. (Use discretion! I wouldn’t let my 16 year old watch this!) Too many bad words and sexual references. Let our kids be kids!!!
