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.

Love this movie!

Great story... great acting! Anthony Anderson really showed how much of a great 'actor' he is and not just a comedian. Loved it!
