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.

Your best bet...look for a better movie to watch--boring.

Honestly....this one was on the boring side...too predictable and then a fuzzy sort of ending...may be worth a rent if not much else is available at the moment but don't pin your hopes on this movie being very entertaining or interesting.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
