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.

A fun film for us all

My 6 year old and 8 year old really enjoyed this film. My 6 year old was on the edge of her seat a couple of times but this just made it exciting. As parents, we enjoyed watching it with them as they found it so funny and for us it was amusing. Nice teamwork at the end, everyone has a role. Would recommend.
