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.

Not for kids!

There's were scenes where dolls were topless, and sexual situations there was also a scene where a woman butt was shown in a thong in a porn flick, and illustrations where woman were naked from the waist up!

This title has:

Too much sex
age 16+


This movie, and I did like the movie, includes a scene of a porno film, very obviously, which features women bending over wearing thongs and lace aprons, followed with a man threatening them with violence. In addition to this scene the movie had many very adult situations that a child simply does not need to be exposed to since it in no way lends anything to the message. There are other films for kids that can send positive messages about recovery and forgiveness. One broken mans obsession with porn doesn’t need to be included in that list.
