Generally disappointing

Too much swearing and sexual inference to recommend for children. The message of the film. Is not uplifting or encouraging.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Totally different meaning

This movie is more of social commentary, discussing the way black peoples are treated in the United States. I was not expecting that at all. This movie is exactly the type of movie that should be discussed on this site. There are a lot of cussing and adult themes. It is thought provoking and a great jumping off point for a discussion about this topic if you are okay with your children hearing swearing and hearing about sexual topics. I was okay with it because my son has heard those words before in society. I liked the movie, but he thought it was boring and didn’t finish it. I wish he had been more interested and wanted to talk about it, but he was expecting a typical Disney type movie. I think it’s a great choice if your child/children are interested in a variety of social topics and enjoy discussing their opinions and critical thinking

This title has:

Great messages
Too much swearing
