Did we miss something on diversity?

99% of this movie is fine, but the review on Common Sense Media let me down on this one! It says "some cursing" but I wish I had known that at some point, someone is called a "whore." It is practically YELLED, and it's a very loaded moment in the film and not easily brushed aside. I was under the impression that "some cursing" meant a few damns, etc... Parents should just know this ahead of time.

A charming remake that stands on its own merits

This is a charming and enjoyable update of the original story, and a romantic comedy that is both smart and suitable for viewing with children. How often can you say that?
