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.

My boys loved this

Just a silly movie for older kids. My kids loved this movie, made them laugh lots. Worst part was the frequent reference of the attractiveness of C Diaz, well over the top. Luckily mine didnt really bother. Also said son of a b**Ch a few times. Overall wasnt the worst they have seen. Lots of reference to smoking too, but they know the dangers anyway.
