I’ve seen this movie so I know what I came here looking for. Information about the scantily clad bimbo on the front of the motorcycle magazine should have been front and center on this review. I skimmed it several times and saw nothing. Had I not known better I would have gotten a not so nice surprise at the movie theater. You need to make information like that IMMEDIATE and VISIBLE. That I saw not one mention of this part of the movie removes all trust I could have had in this website. It was a test of sorts. And you failed. gave this information and it was easily seen. That’s where I’ll go from now on.

I’m sorry we let you down. We have this statement in our content details: “Two characters discover a magazine that shows a scantily clad woman.” Dove appears to have a similar statement in their content details. In either event, Dove is a great site and what’s important is that you find the information you require that is best for your family.

I appreciate Rod’s response.  It was courteous and respectful.  I read the full review and noticed the nudie magazine comment right away.  Thank you for providing this important service.  I wish more parents cared enough about what their kids watch to read your previews.  I am tired of seeing 5 & 6 year olds in movies like the expendables.
