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.

Community Reviews

age 16+

Extremely inappropriate sexual humor

A scene where Zohan is having sex with a mother perfectly clear except their private parts are blocked. Many bare butts shows again and again. Of course all the references to his huge penis. 16+ is the only age group this is appropriate for. Should be rated R

This title has:

Too much sex
age 13+


This movie is hilarious and sarcastic, I laugh just as hard reading the parents 1 star reviews. What do you want every Adams Sandler movie to be a family appropriate comedy? It's nothing your 13 yr old hasn't heard in school. Watch without your kids or let your teens watch without you if your a old man with a stick up your bum. Great movie a better laugh the second time.

Great messages
Great role models
