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 what I thought it would be...

The NetFlix info said sexual references and innuendo. I wish I had checked here first. It starts with Will Smith and a lady friend skinny dipping in a water tower ... Withi. The first time 15 minutes we get half of the n word and the word whore.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Not appropriate first

The FIRST scene has two naked people in a tub kissing. Why doesn't it have a higher warning on the sex for that. HOW was that missed in the description. Wouldnt even continue letting my kids watch.

This title has:

Too much sex
