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.

age 18+


The graphic and gratuitous nudity, sexual content, oral sex, female and male nudity of very young adults, strip clubs, toplessness and bottomlessness - IS OVER THE TOP! This movie is DISGUSTING. No story line and extreme objectification of women.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 15+

Zombie, zombie

Tasty zombie movie junk to stream for teens. Classic zombie tropes, but now with scouts.

This title has:

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