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.

Violence, Group Sex, and Bad Language - R Rated - Not for Children

The values espoused in this film are very base. The goal of obtaining as much wealth and privilege, no matter how many people you have to hurt to do it, is held up as the premier ideal in life. If the main character figured it out in the end, perhaps there would be some redemption. However, instead we are treated with a few instances of disturbing violence against other people, an instance of a group sex orgy, and crude language throughout.

This title has:

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