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.

Horrible

Tacky. Not funny. The only thing I can say is that they talk about sex and penises the whole time. Ugh. It’s not clever or scary or funny or anything worth spending time on
