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.

Overall good film!

It’s a really good movie, it’s just a shame there is so much excessive and unnecessary swearing. I wouldn’t recommend letting children 16 and under watch this.

Parents freaking out here clearly didn't look at rating

It's an R-rated movie -- it's not meant for families with young kids. You shouldn't be showing your tweens R-rated movies. This review says 17+ and clearly describes the swearing and raunchiness. That said, there's no actual sex or nudity (there's a ridiculous shot of a fake erect penis in a selfie), the swearing is nothing your kids haven't heard and it's a funny, fun, and smart parody of male-centric spy films.
