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.

Beware of nudity

I bought this movie after reading the reviews, only to find out that there was nudity in one scene that wasn't mentioned anywhere. The movie went in the garbage.

The Dilemma Review

It was worth watching.. The Film itself does not come out very innocent for young children and it did have a scene of sexual material followed by quite a bit of strong language.. Otherwise, I would only recommend this to older teenagers.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
