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.

This movie has a small amount of violence with swearing. The movie is about a young girls kidnapping and the investigation that comes with it. It has A-list actors and altogether is worth watching.

    Kiss the Girls

    A thrill-less thriller. Too violent for kids.
