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.

Not for 13 year olds !!

I'm watching this movie right now and the kids are popping pills they stole from a family member, and drinking hard liquor they also stole, and a young insecure girl gets naked and tried to strip off the main character's clothes -- all while a disturbed kid looks on and goads them on. How was this suggested for 13 year olds in this site?? I trust you guys for "common sense" -- no way is this movie for tweens.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 12+

A wonderful indie movie

"Terri" is the real thing, and conveys exactly what it's like to be lowest-ranking male in a primate group. The mention of "animal lovers" above obviously is meant for people who prefer mice to birds!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
