COMPADRES' convoluted story includes several shoot outs and chase scenes -- and even some genuinely interesting moments, but not enough of them. Chaparro is fun to watch, but he has no chemistry with Morgan, which is too bad, because the second half of Compadres is about the two of them trying to find Santos and Maria. Fans of action-packed crime comedies may enjoy it, but it's not for younger kids or adults squeamish about blood and bullets.

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.
