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.

Teaching Kids to Destroy Property

In this show, two brothers travel all around the world finding McDonald’s coffee. While they travel around the world, people cook the coffee, wear coffee, and one of them just follows the brothers and does anything he can to annoy them. Instead of calling the police or proper forces, the brothers become vigilantes and destroy the people’s property. The evil people get in trouble and the brothers get away with no consequences. In conclusion, this show just teaches kids that being vigilantes is ok and that you can destroy property without any consequences.

It's great! The 18+ review is of a kid that hates the movie cuz it's boring for him

It's actually very educational and teaches children to not be afraid of going to the doctor. It helps kids overcome fears that they might be controlled but I'd say kids older than seven would get bored just look at the review that a kid put on this show on the kids say part he put it was 18 plus so they can remove this movie but little did he know that this isn't the right place to get a movie remove and he's just an immaturelittle child that doesn't know anything but trolling

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
