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.

All time favorite, but you guys didn't include some key notes!

Early in the movie a bat removal guy says the kids were murdered. And then the little girl says the boy was chopped into pieces and put in the wall! Horrible and should have been in the Language or Violence section,

This title has:

Too much swearing

good movie for kids over eleven

great, but the scene with the spiders is freaky. also, a tad of language, like two or three “damns,” and one “what the hell.”

Too much violence
Too much swearing
