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.

Funniest movie I've seen in years.

Forget the odd swear word and innuendo give yourself a break. The laughs keep on coming one of Shue's best movies. Sit back and relax, much better than some of the blurb pumped out now.
