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.

Great fun

Can’t understand the negative reviews on here, it’s a lovely feel good movie that had my 8 year old son in fits of laughter several times. Enjoy and don’t take life so seriously!

Bad Acting

This was hard to sit through. The elves acting was not very good.

    Slapstick comedy is funny but full of iffy stuff.
