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.

bad language and sex

This movie is great if you somehow filter out the bad language, including the f-word more times than I could count and the sex video in the movie. Ridiculous. Would have been just as good without the bad language and sex. I misread the review the first time around. We were watching it with our two exchange student boys age 16 and 17. Very embarrassing. So sad that Hollywood can't make decent movies without all the filth.

for adults only

great movie - for adults! I am shocked by the 16 and up rating. This is a well written, well acted woody allen-ish nuanced movie but has a lot of nudity. I love it as an adult but as a parent there is no way - there is a subplot of a college freshman who makes films that show her completely naked, simulating sex and using the f word throughout the movie. It was actually a digression and the one weak spot in the film anyways but most definitely not appropriate for minors.
