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.

Interesting and fun movie

This movie was really fun the only reason it is 17 plus is because of severe language. If you watch without subtitles it will be hard to miss.
age 12+


This movie was GREAT it could have been PG-13 if there wasn’t a lot of cursing. There was 3 scenes of the two characters smoking pot but it was a split second nothing shown to much. I recommend this movie highly!!

This title has:

Too much swearing
