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.

A great coming of age comedy

Highly recommended for kid's of all ages. I saw it when I was 7 and although some kid's might find it scary it's very tame by todays standards.
age 16+

Not PG, drugs, alcohol, sex, and homosexual slurs

Should have come here first to red reviews. Had to turn off mid movie due to inappropriate content. Must have been rated PG prior to rating changes. Definitely not PG.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
