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.

age 16+

A couple of great performances, but...

A film framed with unrealistic wardrobes and settings and realistic dialogue. Rose petals in a bath at a moment's notice...really? Who's gonna clean that up? A lot of caricatures and a leading man whose immaturity made identifying with him very difficult. A few good lines and a great performance by Terrence Howard and the stunning Nia Long.
