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.

Good family flix!

Some mildly sad scences and mildy scarry but is a good simple story with decent acting.

Eight Below is Great for kids

Eight Below is good for your little ones especially if you have toddlers younger than 6 years of age. Kids would definitely love that Walt Disney movie. If I like Eight Below, your kids will definitely love it too. It does a some violence in the movie, but they probably aren’t recommended for a kid under 12 years of age. Sorry if I didn’t edit this like I should have done this two years ago aka 2017. Don’t get me wrong but I’m not wrong like I do get wrong at times. Like sometime I do lie about stuff I shouldn’t.
