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.

Great movie

I saw it on tv and they cut out almost all the inepropiate content.If you dont want your child seeing all of that watch it on tv and stop complaining,gosh!
not rated for age

Antwon Fisher wrote the story.......

I took 4 grandkids. 2 country kids and 2 suburb kids. It is a terrific look at city life, esp Atlanta. All country and suburb kids should go. Our kids have been told about this writer and we'd travel a long way to see his work or read his work.
