Did we miss something on diversity?

Tween Movie with some Violence

This is a Disney Channel -like- movie + guns. (I think the only reason for the PG-13 rating). Older teens will definitely be bored by this movie if they are no longer interested in the Disney Channel. Mild violence but I don't think appropriate for younger kids. I feel the movie was trying to have a moral message but I didn't like for my younger kids to see children in the movie help to break the law, lie to the police, etc. As a parent I found it boring, but overall the main character did have a change of heart about himself and wanted to help others, which was good. My children were entertained by the movie.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 11+

Kinda funny, kinda boring.

My 11-year-old and I watched this, it was kind of a bore but it had it's funny moments. I'd say eleven and up due to the profanity (though it's lighter then the average PG-13 movie I see).

This title has:

Too much swearing
