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.

Funny for parents not appropriate for kids

Great for parents that grew up in the 90's. I wouldn't recommend it for kids under the age of 13 because it's dark. Although dealing with cartoons it somehow is also dealing with drugs kidnapping/human trafficking the ugly side of child actors among other things. There is also a background joke with he-man and skelator that probably goes over kids heads but is inappropriate. Again for adults, I really liked it and thought it was creative, entertaining and funny, definitely shouldn't be marketed to children.

Too much violence

Actually a Family Movie! Very Clean!

I don't understand all the negative reviews. This movie had a lot of Easter eggs (like, a lot), mostly referring to either the cartoon or other Disney shows. It also had plenty of shameless promoting that was actually funny. The story was well done, and content was actually suited for families. If there were inside jokes, I missed them. If there was dark humor, I missed that too. As a parent, I look for those things, and just did not see it. My whole family enjoyed the movie, and we are an eclectic bunch. No one had ever seen Rescue Rangers before, but they enjoyed the humor, which was plentiful. I can only say that this is one of the truly family movies available today. There is no swearing, bloody violence, or innuendo (which is hard to find nowadays). Certainly much better than Multiverse of Madness for content and appropriateness!
