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.

Great movie. I definately recommend seeing it. People definately over-exaggerate the violence because most of it is not shown because it is either to far to see, the person being smashed and bashed is hidden behind somethin or its a silhouette. There are a few scenes that show the actual violence and blood. The movie was also very funny. Its sexual humor. Very sexual
