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 movie was so so. Definately not for kids, the cussing and drugs use not good for them to see. But I would say dont waste your time, unless your a die hard fan of any of the people in the movie. The movie was slow and actually pretty boring.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
not rated for age
