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.

Fun and Intense

It’s a fun movie, but there are three issues parents need to be aware of, beyond language (very minor spoilers): 1. In the beginning, when people are being removed from the elevator, there is partial nudity (a woman’s skirt rides-up and she is clearly wearing a g-string, or something similar) 2. In an early scene (bar scene), Harry says “I’m gonna go home and have some sex” 3. At the very end, a character says they will base their relationship “on sex”
