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 Little Too Much

85% of this film is fine for kids even as young as 9; HOWEVER, a full 15% (+-) includes too many sexual.....not just innuendos but explicit statements that either include terms (example “boner”) and/or verbal references to miscellaneous sex acts. Just a little too much for my 8th grader (daughter, who I keep well-informed), whose father now fabulously knows that SHE knows what a “boner” is. I tell her so she will know from me rather than a schoolmate but I would have preferred not to have all of this play out on a screen with the whole family together until she is a little bit older - it felt awkward enough times (once or twice would have been okay) that even she thinks she should have been older to watch it.
