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.

This is what I would call a stereotypical kids film.

It's not bland! It's only weakness is that it's not over the top constantly...but thats not a weakness in my house. We love the simple humorous moments, slapstick, and character dynamics. There are still thrills and tense moments where the little grabs holds his face in a moment of concern for the hero, even though he's seen it 5 times already. If warm, funny, slapstick, no one dies, great chase scenes, positve historically uplifting character interaction is bland then I feel lucky the bar for us is low 'cause we're not getting this movie out of the monthly rotation any time soon.
