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 80s fun

Definitely not the G rating of today, however fairly harmless and goes over the heads of the young kids. Was an interesting moment when they talked about "believing in the easter bunny"... though that seemed to go over the head of my 6 year old.
age 10+

Watched it with my 5yo and we both LOVED it!

I put 10+ because there's knives and stuff and the "baddies" sometimes look like they've got intent, but my 5yo was fine. The music is typical "80's movies" synth and the whole thing is an excuse for having kids on bikes do stunts everywhere. The last 30mins are brilliant and tickled the child in me. Great, light entertainment. There are innuendos but they went right over my boy's head.
