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.

Too much foul language

The movie is fine, and my 7 yr old was not scared, but too much foul language for kids. Faggot, bitch, nards, homos, virgin, shit, asshole, to name a few, plus there are a few scenes where the kids are trying to determine if a girl is a virgin.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
