A Night at the Kindergarten is especially adept at showing the way that supposedly responsible parents can behave just as childishly and cruelly as their "difficult " kids. However, this gets tedious in scenes in which parents seem to be letting their hair down and "admitting" how they really feel about their kids and how difficult it is to raise them. One woman says, "All kids are stupid and get less stupid" as they grow. She can't wait until hers grows enough so she has "someone to talk to." While Eryk seems to deepen from an irresponsible playboy to someone who begins to understand what Tytus is going through, there's still little in the way of character development or true dramatic interest here.

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.
