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 objectionable sexual content for children

This movie is fine for adults, but the things it teaches children about sexuality will not serve them well. The movie suggests that divorce is OK and normal (tell that to the child psychology experts, who say divorce is one of the worst things you can do for your children). The movie suggests that premarital reproductive (sexual) activity is OK as well, not a lesson that will make your child's life better. There is also some objectionable language and a profanity.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
