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.

Laugh out loud funny! Great movie for family with teens

My 2 cents: I definitely lean toward the conservative side as far as exposing my 16 yr old to sex, drugs, and violence. Having said that, except for the person being run over repeatedly, during which I had to close my own eyes, I thought it was hysterical and a great family movie for ages 16+. The “orgy” part was barely visible and very brief. The other violence and sex was no worse than prime time network TV, which I limit but don’t ban...makes good material for meaningful dialogue...
