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.

Good but too many women

This may be good option for a girls night But I found the movie to have too many show girls and badly dressed women for my taste. Wouldn't let my boys watch it.
