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.

Very low quality entertainment for kids

I don't think I can think of a more annoying movie for kids and onlooking parents to watch. If my kids are going to watch a movie, I want them to watch things that are of quality, not dumbed down, mindless shows. This movie will NEVER enter my house.
