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.

Don't trust the 12+ rating

There is a sex scene where the man stimulates the woman genitals and she outwardly displays arousal. I would NEVER allow my child to see this adult act. There may not be a ton of sex scenes....but one is too many for my children. No child EVER needs to see that type of adult interaction.

Great movie...FOR ADULTS

Excellent film, but really not for kiddos: very suggestive sex scene (lots more than just kissing, even though there's little nudity), loads of violence, mature plot lines. Fairy tale-like aspects and flying are cool for kids, but entire package is not kid- friendly, especially for those who don't play video games and/or watch explicit tv shows.
