Is It Any Good?

Back on Board lacks some of the spark that made its predecessor such a fan favorite. But it still blends a decent script with strong performances and positive messages about being true to yourself and thoughtful about your choice in friends. Top that off with thrilling scenes of the latest extreme sport, and families will likely find a lot to like.

Did we miss something on diversity?
