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.

good with some isolated problem areas

Language should be a concern for parents of children 13 or younger, especially with the way one boy talks about women and certain body parts. Having said that, this movie does have a couple strong points, including strong, independent women who start their own business who eventually find out what their old boss was really up to. And, after a slow start, their new business ultimately succeeds. It sends the message that there comes a point where you need to leave your job if you're in a hostile work environment.
