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.

90 minutes we'll never get back.

My son, almost 8, liked this movie. I thought it was awful for the following reasons: -the story and writing is contrived. It's almost unbearably bad. I fell asleep three times (granted I have the flu; were I in my right mind I would've read the reviews and said no to this choice) -the language is terrible - everybody is a "jerk" and so on - the characters are, by and large, unkind with no redeeming qualities or complexity (save Casper, who's one-dimensional and frankly, kind of annoying in his absolute lack of personality) I'd watch Merry Christmas Mr. Bean on Youtube instead (hilarious!)

This title has:

Too much swearing
