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.

ROMANTIC, FUNNY! Great for kids

Sweet movie! Guy falls for a woman with memory impairment and must win her over daily. The way they solve the problem at the end made me cry it was so awesome. Shows how people who love someone can work around serious disabilities and have wonderful lives together and family. Some crude jokes but no real sex or gross references....super funny!

    Brilliant teen-pregnancy comedy, but iffy for kids.

    Stranger Than Fiction

    Touching dramedy is heavy; some violence, cursing.

    L.A. Story

    Sweet and quirky, but only L.A. kids will get the joke.
