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.

Compelling, but a bit confusing

Note that there is male nudity in this movie. A man's buttocks is shown twice. There are also two scenes with implied male nudity, and several scenes of men in nothing but long-underwear. I am surprised Common Sense Media gave this only a 1 out of 5 on Sexual Content. . . Be warned, parents.

This title has:

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