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.

Potentially great movie to watch with kids Fails due to crude actor!

While I like the movie, sci-fi, special effects, and even plot, the balance was COMPLETELY thrown off by a kid that appears to be around 12 years old from looks. For reference I have an 11 and 13 year old. In the plot, the boy is independent and sarcastic due to loosing his father a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, they take this way too far and make the boy out to act like a jerky adult. There are many-many examples of this such as the boy asking his older self if “I’m going to get laid”, and then acts so excited to find out as if he knows exactly what it is (aka, kid has watched some porn apparently). It really bummed me out that they had to insert such a vulgar-crude-reference kid because I really wanted to watch this movie with my son. So glad I happened to check the movie out first. Trust me, I’m not a prude, the vulgar kid in this movie is really over the top. Very sad, could have been the perfect movie to watch with my kiddo:(. PS, boy also says “f--ck” in a way used by how an adult would react to something.

Not bad movie, pity about language

Movie had a lot of great potential. Pity they had to mess it up with such bad language. On the positive side, some good values instilled. Every time I watch something on Netflix I wish they had the option to just mute all bad language. If not for the language I would rate this at least 4.
