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.

Such a funny intro to a monster theme

Watched this with our four year old and seven year old. As a younger brother, the 4yo’s sensibilities are a bit mature, but it really isn’t a scary movie except for the mob scene toward the end (think “Kill the Beast”). They laughed so much throughout and watched it twice in the three day rental period. I think it will be a fall staple for us.

Way too scary for sensitive 7 year old

Based on other reviews I was shocked by how much peril there was. Why is it so hard to find movies where the bad guy doesn't get that much screen time? Lots of guns and shooting. My son is sensitive to emotional turmoil and was disturbed to the point of crying and running out over the possibility that Wallace might hurt his friend. We had to stop the movie four times. His review: "Scarier than what I thought because usually rated Gs are ok for me but this wasn't ok. It was okay because I had my mom and dad to be here and that helps me and I was able to stop the movie and that was really was awesome I would say it should be a PG movie. The were-bunny was was scary."
