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.

Disgustingly disturbing

Well first off a TON of smoking! Drinking and animal abuse are extremely present as well and I really got no positive message. Plus, there were many insults used. As a kid this movie gave me nightmares. I’m not sure why it’s marketed as a cute dog movie when it is truly traumatizing. I watched it when I was younger and I am still scared of this movie.
