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.

One of the best Rom-Coms ever

Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes have amazing chemistry, the script is tight and funny, J-Lo looks absolutely stunning at that ball, when she tells him she only came to tell him that it had to end, he says “then you shouldn’t have worn that dress”, genius. Love this movie!
