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.

This film is good, but...

This film is a good film, although, it doesn't always reach everybody's interests. The film has some good laughs, but if you are not into those types of movies. It can be quite a bore-fest. There is a lot about golf and the film would be great if you are into English comedy. But if you're not into those types of programmes. I don't recommend Language: There are a few uses of the f-word. But they are used in non-sexual context and are played for laughs and quips. they use the s-word and they use words like bollo***. and others. they also use the words bloody hell. Friggin,and when a man is trying to speak Spanish to a man. he uses testicles by accident and in no sexual way. Taking the piss is used and so are some blasphemous remarks. Sexual Content: There is little no sexual content but the two twins refer to ladies as ''birds'. Drinking and usage of drugs: The main character is seen with a cigarette in his hand regularly. There is some drinking at a pub. but there is nothing much that should stop you or concern you of the content in this film.
