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.

Beware- especially boys

Other reviews mention specific scenes and I agree to fast forward those due to sexual innuendo and content. But I also have a big problem with the clear intent for one character to look naked, albeit colored. The movie subtly puts a lot of emphasis on her breasts and since she has the look of being naked, it is something to consider with teen boys. Watch with caution.
