Did we miss something on diversity?

Children's Movies Need to be for Children

For a PG movie I did not appreciate that it had the parents climbing on top of each other so much. Why was that needed? We stopped watching when the sex talk was brought up since my daughters are only 4 and just turned 8 a couple days ago. I don't understand why there should be any adult themes in a children's movie but I would not reccomend this to familes especially with younger kids. I can not speak for story since we didn't finish it but half way through my husband commented that there was no storyline whatsoever and I agree.

Political movie based on the movie Yours, Mine, Ours

I wish Disney didn’t buy into all the politics. They did the same thing with Turning Red. So much extra stuff that didn’t need to be in a family movie. I came from a broken home and took in my niece when her mom couldn’t care for her but this movie wasn’t relatable. You can show how degrading racism is but not like this. Make it touch their hearts not cringe.
