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.

Depending on there maturity no younger then 14.

I under stand that every body wants to protect there kids. But when your kids become teens there not your ' little girl/boy ' anymore. They arent going to tell you every thing. And parents who think that keeping secrets and throwing them in a shell is going to keep there kids from doing stuff they dont want to do. Guess what your wrong. It only causes rebellion. This movie is filled with sex and drinking. I myself kind of wonder how it missed an r-rated. Im not saying they should watch this movie for education but i am saying if u dont tell them and u refuse to let them grow up. There just going to go behind your back and find there own source.

This title has:

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