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.

More of the same, and then some.

Exactly what you saw in the first movie, only worse. In this movie there is not much respect shown by either the kids or the parents. The fathers are also so obnoxious and childish that they make Adam Sandler's characters look grown-up and mature by comparison.
