Is It Any Good?

A basically good kid achieves an impossible goal -- what's not to like? You've got to admire Sean Rosen's drive and creativity and appreciate the wisdom that finally checks his ambition. The peek at Hollywood's inner workings in I REPRESENT SEAN ROSEN is pretty interesting, though less so his life at school (Sean finds many classes uninteresting). Key plot points surface in emails and texting -- a nice touch.

There are lots of stock kids and adults here: the bully, the loner, the shopaholic. But Sean's dad is a carefully drawn character struggling with a shameful family secret.

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.
