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.

Pass on this and watch Finding Dory

I know we all like to find something new but this was a terrible find. I actually regret putting it on before reading the reviews. In the opening scene the main character is flat out rude to his mother, and sets a really poor example that you don't see him rectify until the end of this horrible tale that has actually nothing to do with water. The kids are rude, they cuss, the story drags on and my kids who generally will watch anything animated were disappointed. There are no role models, no great messages. If you are looking for a fish tale go with Finding Dory.
