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.

Wrong ratings

There's quite a bit of kissing and flirting which the commonsense ratings do not mention. Absolutely disappointing since I do not expose my kids to this but unfortunately they watched the kissing and I'm not at all happy about that ! Thanks to commonsense !!!

Unappreciated gem of a movie!

I can't believe I'd never heard of this film before. It's a fantastic remake of the original suitable for almost all ages. I was looking for a kid-friendly way to introduce my kids to Jackie Chan, and this far exceeded my expectations. The star-studded cameo appearances by Arnold, the Wilson brothers, and others kept things entertaining for adults. Whole cast was strong. Wish they made more films like this. I think the violence rating is too high in the "professional" review. All of the violence in this movie is slapstick, and no one gets killed.
