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.

Really bad role models.

Well, I couldn't recommend this for any young impressionable person. This is a bad example of a healthy romance. One sex scene, one make out. Some profanity. Some drinking and getting drunk. (On a profanity note, If you watch on Youtube the subtitles translate Cuckold into something that sounds like cuckold but much more graphic) SPOILERS. Main male ends up kissing and sleeping with the main female under false pretense after his failed attempt to ruin her life.(He ended up falling in love her but really that's no excuse) Also since she was engaged, those encounters were also cheating. He did not tell her that he had been manipulating whole situation before he kissed/slept with her. Her fiancé isn't a good match either but no excuse to cheat on him. The man who manipulated her ends up with her. Pretty messed up plotline. On a not romance point of bad example, Woman sets off fire alarm and then main man(He's a firefighter, on duty at time of call.) and his group(and an engine) has to drive way out of his district to go be romantic with main woman. Yes, leave your district potentially unprotected. Though that's just movie/romance logic so can't complain too much. SO! In conclusion, I can't recommend for young people. If they have a good grasp on what is acceptable and unacceptable in a relationship then it's fine.
