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.

Epic crossover between Sesame Street and Rick and Morty

This is an epic film where the Sesame Street gang team up with Rick and Morty to defeat lord Fartquad. Even though it features Rick and Morty, it is actually very family friendly, as all the swear words are bleeped out. However, I give this film a 7+ rating because anyone younger may be scared of lord Fartquad.

Enjoyed it!

Overall a good movie for my more sensitive 5 year old with lots of laughs and a sweet message. We enjoyed it for our movie night.
