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.

Do Not Watch This Film

I don't think anyone should see this movie. Not because it is vulgar or anything like that. I don't think anyone should watch/support a film where someone getting sexually assaulted and r*ped twice is treated as comedic. They also have the victim end up with their r*pist, as if assault was just a normal stage in the romcom development. I was absolutely disgusted. Beyond that, there is a good deal of swearing, very crude sexual humor, several "sex" (actually r*pe) scenes, characters use drugs, characters get drunk, there's a man with a broken foot, and a heightened scene with sharks is present.

No way, no how appropriate for kids

I normally think that Official Commonsense reviews are conservative and you could take a year or two off their recommendations. But this time I’d add a year or two. Apart from the profanity (which isn’t bad for 15/16yo) the sex references and innuendo are next level. One scene has a clothed threesome with a song very clearly and loudly proclaiming over and over to lick p***y and c**k. Just a big no for teens under 17.
