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.

Surprisingly entertaining and adventurous

Like most movies, a tad of gender biases, sibling rivalry and slight love interest side story, however, loved the imaginative and pure quality of Arthur. His relationship with his grandparents was sentimental and they it did not have a tragic end to any of Arthur’s family. He exemplifies courage and remains an honorable character no matter who is around him. My 6 year olds were immersed in it and heard the part of the heart being one’s guide in life. Highly recommended!

Look at the parents and kids reviews. The reviewer obviously is an amateur if they give it a 2/5 and everyone else gives it a 4/5. What a pompous uneducated jerk!
