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.

Shocked this got a PG rating... it's tame for adults, but definitely not a kids' movie

There's an over-reliance on sex jokes in this movie. That alone should mean it's at least a PG-13 rating. How it managed to get just a "PG" is beyond me. There are references to orgasms, sex toys, a romantic couple literally having sex in a movie theater (bare female legs in the air, man gyrating), thinly veiled fellatio... I just can't fathom the rating. This is coming from someone who loves the Zucker movies, and have watched them repeatedly over the years. The comedy is great, it's just a mistake to show to a kid.

My favorite movie

Not as naughty as Airplane. There is still Latrine, who acts as a running gag of coming in as if escaping a slaughter. He is all bandaged up. As this is a Cold War parody, there is plenty of comic violence. Some sexual references.
