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.

The Joneses

This movie was riveting. I was looking on Netflix for a good movie to watch and saw this one. While the description was fairly vague, I decided to try it anyway. While there is a little nudity (so definitely not for kids) the plot of the movie gives a look into a consumerist society and gives a message of how it negatively impacts the way we and encourages us to be wary of the way we spend our money. Anyways great movie and would definitely recommend it to anyone 18+

This title has:

Great messages
Too much consumerism
