15 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was extremely disappointed when within the first 10 minutes the F***bomb was used. This movie I was hoping was to be a nice family movie that a younger audience would be able to watch without their ears needing to be covered. Needless to say, we turned the movie off and will not recommend it to anyone else. What a bummer. I suppose for future reference, when we see the movies have a rating of NR we need to be more selective. I use IMDb for this very reason, to check on parental reviews with regards to language, sex and nudity and the like. I appreciate this about the website however, The Discoverers had no such reviews but I took a chance and learned a lesson.
