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 absolutely STUPID

This is an embarrassment of a film. If I could give this no stars I would! Don’t let the good reviews deceive you! The film is only “loved” because of how bad it is. It’s considered a “cult-classic.” Don’t bother if you’re looking for a good film. Terrible acting horrendous editing and cringey sex scenes that make no impact on the plot. Pointless, stupid and crap.
