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.

It was just a fun movie for mother and daughters. We enjoyed it.

There was WAY more than sexual innuendo and wow the amount of cleavage. I guess that my family is more conservative than I thought. There is a 5 second scene that I felt was completely unneeded and inappropriate that supposedly had to do with a "soap opera," but was over the top. I would not recommend watching this with children. My husband said the best part was when "The End" flashed across the screen. If you're basing watching the video on the book you'll be disappointed in the liberties that were taken.
