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.

I loved it.

Great soundtrack. A few teen movie cliches can’t change the sweet vibe and excellent takedown of social media ranking that the story brings. Girl power! More daphne and MORE VELMA!

Fairly innocent but plot is lame

The plot makes very little sense and the acting is hokey. But it is pretty innocent for kids. There are a few things that weren't mentioned in the "sexy stuff" category. One boy refers to himself as "hunky." The principal's "Alexa-type" machine erroneously posts her "bikini pics" to the internet, though the pics are not shown. I'm only halfway through this movie so far with my kids, and overall it's pretty cheesy. There are a lot of good things about it, too. My kids are liking it and they are 5,8 and 10. They do say it's a little scary/creepy. But they watch Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings and Narnia with no issues, so I'm actually a little surprised they find it scary. I'm sure they'll be fine.
