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.

Surprisingly good, Justin Long holds his own.

Only PG-13 rated installment is still lots of fun!

Explosions, shootouts, and excitement are all present in the 4th installment in this brilliant franchise! Plus it's rated PG-13, so it's tamer than it's predecessors, and just because it's tamer, doesn't mean is lame, because it's just as exciting as the last 3 movies!
