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 was so scared during the opening scene that I dropped my popcorn! It's a great plot and there's not really any bad language. Apparently Dora wants to mate some people which is kind of weird. Other than that it's a great movie. Boots sounds like a Chainsmoker but he is so cute though.

My kids, 7, 10, 14 watched it,

In the movie, there is a conversation about mating, one teen ager says ' don't talk to me about mating' and they joke about it back and forth. Which idiot thought, hey let's put a conversation about matting in a movie 7 or younger kids might watch?
