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.

Proto-abusive excuse

There is a scene where a character says she doesn't appreciate physical contact and the Rock's character says that he thinks she really does. And with no change in situation except a man said it was ok, she suddenly was happy for the hug. This is not appropriate for any child perhaps not for adults. "She really wanted it" is the rape/abuse excuse of many I'd not most date rapers and abusers. To have that put in front of children who don't get that "no" means no is wrong. Furthermore, this scene can trigger PTSD-like reactions in those who have had these boundaries crossed, such as myself. For this and the glorification of the hockey fight I call this movie too violent and cannot suggest it for children at all.

Nothing wrong with squeaky clean!

I love this movie and so do my kids, ages 11, 10, 8 and 5. It's nice to have a movie that isnt inappropriate or too adult oriented. Dont get me wrong, I like a movie that has some humor for adults as well, but movies these days are going too far and it's nice to have good clean fun for my kids to enjoy.
