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.

age 7+

Chaotic movie with not much of a plot has enough slapstick to keep kids entertained.

A funny but sometimes flat movie that is very entertaining at times. An explicitly racist joke (which is apparently referencing a hit 1931 song that satirized racism) was unexpected and really put a damper on things for a bit, but otherwise it's funny, at times surreal, and worth it as an exploration of the slapstick humor of days gone by.
age 18+

Appropriate ism's for its time

Omfg, I love a bit of swear, I was shocked by the a. S and sh.. that was in Back to the future, I am trying to show my 8yo some of the movies that I have seen. This one however,??? You might as well show your child the hit BBC comedy Love thy neighbour! Really dated ism's, and I normally take this site with a pinch of salt,. If you love a fat woman joke then this film is good for you!

This title has:

Great role models
