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.

One of my favourites

age 12+

PG-13 Thriller Has a Bit of Sexual Content.

This Movie has a lot of Sexual Content for a PG-13. Once they tie-up the teacher, they try to blackmail her by taking "dirty" pictures of her. There's a Sex Scene and tons of Innuendo/references. This Movie is a twist on the average teen thriller but isn't very good.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
