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.

Teacher Review

In my school district, we are allowed to show PG movies to our 5th graders. I always use this site to ensure that the movies are school appropriate. While the general rating said zero for sex and language, there is mild inappropriate sexual innuendos throughout the movie, as well as, mild language like "damn" and "hell". I would advise not showing this to children less than 13 years of age.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 8+

Fab family Christmas film.

We watch this every year and really enjoy it. Watched with children aged between ages 5 and13.
