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.

Excellent, off-beat movie for teens and tweens

My HS senior kept saying, "This seems like a Wes Anderson movie!" Indeed it did. If you like that sort of off-beat humor, this is the movie for you. One thing I really liked is the way these extreme, solitary students were not given the stereotypical treatment of bullied underdogs. Their fellow students were respectful and although this may not have been completely realistic, it was refreshing after seeing SO MANY "typical" teen comedies.

Lovely film, especially for girls.

My two older kids and I saw this in the Newport Beach film festival, and thoroughly loved it. It's been a long time since we've seen a film that was essentially driven by a 16 year old girl who is clearly the smartest one in the room, and she's also kind and has a wonderful relationship with her mother, played by Kristen Chenoweth. It didn't hurt that the girl is played by Olivia Holt, my kids loved her in 'Kickin it". The two kids in the film decide to run for the school board, so it has a little of the 'we can change the world' to it as well as a sweet romance. One bad word spoken in anger which was a bit shocking, but other than that, this is definitely a family film through and through.
