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.

A few things

Ok I loved the movie! But a few things... Ok so first Hallie’s dad is MAKING OUT WITH A GIRL! Two! Hallie mentions the phrase “Your Sexy that’s why my dad likes you”. Three! Annie’s mom gets drunk but she’s just dizzy so it’s not that bad... But overall it’s a good movie
