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.

Good movie

Its a good movie with a lot of action and themes that X files fans love (conspiracies, aliens, plot twists galore) One slightly sexual thing was not included in the review and caught me by surprise unfortunately which was a scene with public urination with Moulder and another character. Nothing is shown, except for a suggestive shaking motion at the end.
