Did we miss something on diversity?

Great for families with tweens

Fun movie, great for tweens. You definitely have to be ok with language- especially ‘sh*t’. There is one moment with a box of “goodies”, including a weird eggplant-looking dildo(?) and some lube, but my kids had no idea what they were looking at, so it made zero difference. The movie has violence and lots of action, but not much gore. I’d say that if your kids have seen the Marvel movies & you’re ok with more language, you’re good to go. Hart and Harrelson are hilarious!
