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.

Almost Christmas

Great movie. Family comedy and I love it! :-)

Worth seeing

While there definitely is a debatable amount of swearing and a few sexually suggestive encounters, this movie isn't one to pass up. The humor of the movie is timely and refreshing for its pg-13 rating and the theme of togetherness and moving beyond the past to a better future, while not necessary new in and of itself, is portrayed in a considerably touching way. It's funny and modern and I think a great movie for the family to see (as long as children aren't too young).
