Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

A Second Chance: Rivals! is utterly predictable but suitable for kids, and those interested in gymnastics may find it fun. On the scale of standards for dialogue, acting, and directing, this ranks low. All problems are solved a bit too easily. Bullies admit wrongdoing and apologize immediately. A girl developing an eating disorder simply agrees to end her body dysmorphia when someone tells her to. Girls who don't work hard enough just agree to work harder. Those who were enemies make up. If only life were this easy.

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.
