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.

A good film for the family

In this film you'll find less exploitation of the female body than can be seen in television commercials your children probably see every day. Foul language and drinking doesn't distract from the message of the film. Obviously this is a Golf film but, unlike other Golf films, this one has a message that will warm your heart.

This title has:

Great messages

Takes God's name in vain multiple times.

If taking God's name in vain offends you then you will want to skip this movie. The movie starts off with the character taking God's name in vain. It happened again towards the beginning of the movie so I had to turn it off. Just wanted to forewarn people who might find this offensive.

This title has:

Too much swearing
