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.

Movie Critics should get a life. This movie needs to be seen

This movie is TOO important not to be seen. Some critics seem not to care about Exploitation of women, and think they could make a better movie. Critics don't make movies, why? because they have no talent. This movie is too important to be criticized, and needs to be promoted for the extremely serious content.
