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.

All over the place

Oceans 11 or the Italian job would be a better way to spend tv time with your family.

Great movie!

This movie, (I think is one of the best heist movies ever) This movie has surprisingly not that much violence (Just props blowing up and fight scenes). The language mainly consists of 12 s words and 1 f word. The sexual content is minimal and brief. But is just some sexual references between men, words like "all cocked up" and "golden shower". Parents would know what the words mean but kids would not know, when I took my 11 yr old saying to him that even though we bought tickets going to the theaters that if anything I don't like pops up on the flick that what ever I say, there is a possibility that we could walk out of the theaters. We did not because everything was minimal (violence, language drug use and sexual content). Overall if you child is mature, then a 11 yr old should be able to watch this.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
