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.

Community Reviews

age 18+

I'm just going to say it was a cheesy stereotypical ethnic community that glorifies drug dealing and the entire ridiculous lifestyle + nothing but tits and ass. The main character did a good job he will be going places. Walked out a little over halfway through the movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+

A good teaching for young adults

I think it's a good movie and teaches young children about the life and consequences of the drug game and cartels.

This title has:

Great messages
