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.

Not Bad!

Saw the movie with my husband and my 4 yr old son. Loved the storyline and the effects. I kind of dozed off in a couple of scenes but my son liked the movie even though there were a couple of times in which he was a bit restless especially in the part where Alex was hungry and would see his friends as food. Even though I thought it was a bit too much, my son didn't get frightened (which was good). But we all loved the last part and especially when the lemurs would sing and dance.

Not happy with the undertones or language

I was appalled to see the "Cop" segment in which the object is to out run them or knock them down. The police (who are all white with mustaches) are also referred to as "the man". And since when is "This sucks" acceptable language for children?
