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.

Amazing film from the beginning to the end! Incredible story and funny characters. The only thing i don't like is the bad critics people made for this movie.
age 18+

Terrible messaging for kids

Referencing eating disorders as a joke. Male characters making unwanted advances towards female characters. I didn’t even see much of the movie before I had to turn it off. Netflix should do better.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
