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.

The end is cheesy though.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
age 3+

Well I think it was pretty poor compared to the series.

First it was updated to the 80's/90's, they should of left it in the 60's as it was. The music was god awful as were the modern messages regarding fatherhood and do-gooding. The original series was masterfully funny and well done. Had this film been made in the same manner of the 60's series it would of been a hit. The fact that someone from (un)-commonsensemedia wrote a "Warning" regarding the depiction of a NORMAL family is unreal to me. This just cry's agenda! The Jetsons was produced in a better time in what seems a better place. The Frankfurt school indoctrinan-ees have witlessly followed a prescribed ideal and this is the result.
