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.

The film has probably about 25 to 30 f-bombs, not too many other expletives. One graphic cartoon depictions of sex (shows the act so extremely graphic). Violence is just explosions, and towards the end of the movie one characters pops up who drugs everyone on weed and shrooms. Otherwise just some language and mild innuendo. (other than the sex depiction). On the good side, the kid fights for his love and shows that you can't be stopped for the peson your meant to be with. My MPAA Rating: R for brief strong language, Graphic Sexual Content, and Drug Use.

Great role models
Too much sex
