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.

Good adult fun - not for kids

While this comedy is not suitable for kids under the age of 15 -16, for adults, and especially divorced parents, there are some positive messages here. Christine admittedly drinks too much, is promiscuous, and seems to be prejudiced against everyone (equally!); however, this divorced couple has figured out how to work well together to raise their son. Dad's steady relationship with "new" Christine is dealt with straight forward, and "old" Christine's attempts to find love and happiness are character studies in what works and what doesn't - in both cases.
