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.

I lost BRAIN CELLS wondering why COMMON SENSE MEDIA Rated this a 2 STAR

SO overall if you have not checked out of my other reviews just click on my name. But seriously what it's like if common sense media knew how to make me even madder than I should Be. Like rly, it's violent and stuff, but unique in it's own way. Jeremy Jeremy got third degree malaria because it was so darn violent, but it like rly good.

If you can stand gross-out horror mixed with comedy, this is the movie for you! It's hilarious and creepy, which is a fun mix. There's lots of gross stuff so if your kids can't handle that, don't let them see it. Language isn't so bad. The mayor has a potty mouth which is pretty funny at times. Mostly just the f-word though.
