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.

Wait til DVD or on netflix

The movie was not what I expected, the movie was slow the plot got in at towards the ending. Violence is an issue, some blood is shown and beating a woman is seen. A beaten woman is shown in a bathtub with blood, not graphic but some viewers may see it as graphic. Positive messages are shown through out the movie. The sex scene is very quick and very mild other viewers may see it as graphic but isn't, no nudity is shown. Adult Language is very mild and not frequent. Consumeration is shown throughout the movie but not really as focused. The movie is not worth the money. I should've waited til it came out on DVD or Netflix. The movie is a waste of money and very disappointing.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism

    More sexy stuff than you'd expect for a syrupy romance.
