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.

Just a few minor things

Use of the word stupid and dumb. When dixie is emotional eating the cat asks "why don't you just put it on your hips " My 5 year old said it made her a little sad though she couldn't pinpoint why but overall my girls enjoyed it.

Ehhhhh... What did I just watch?? Okay, I have seen it a couple of times, but it is a little wierd. It starts off fine, with some mischiefs and adventures with Todd and Cooper which we enjoyed watching in the first movie. But it is when they're going to the carnival that things are going WAAAY downhill. There suddenly everything is all about the dog band and singing stuffs and how Cooper gets involved and become a star and Todd feels left out. And then they're trying to get the band back together. Like, what??! What does that have to do with Fox and the Hound? And once again, it's not even about them!! The dog band becomes the main characters instead! This movie could've been all about them without Todd and Cooper then it would've worked much better. But it is a sequel to Fox and the Hound and the least they can do is to let it be about THEM! But no.... (Sigh) At least I give it some credit for the music. It has surprisingly good written country music. It fits the environment and makes this messy movie at least a little enjoyable. The animation is okay too, but sometimes it's just too obvious that it's done by a computer. Even as a silly kids movie for the younger ones, the kids deserves better than this. But if you like country music and just wanna see a cute childhood story about Todd and Cooper, I guess it's okay.
