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.

Community Reviews

age 14+

Hollow and boring.

2 shootings. 1 self inflicted. Neither are graphic. 22 f words. Pretentious, undramatic, unexplained, anything tgat seems interesting is undone by some BS, wooden pwrformances with no chemistry.
