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.

this movie is NOT FOR KIDS It's only for ADULTS

there's scene of strip club, violance, murder and Sexual harassment
age 18+

Not for under 18

There are plenty of idiots leaving reviews of this film, suggesting this movie is appropriate for kids as young as 10? 13? There is a scene in a strip club, it shows women in thongs and fully bare breasted....last I checked, if you were under the age of 18 you were not aloud to walk into a strip club or view pornographic material so I don’t see how so many People are suggesting this movie is appropriate in anyway shape or form for minors? Other than that the movie is fine, it’s not terrible, it’s not amazing. I would suggest watching it on like Netflix for free rather than renting it.
