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.

Entertaining and Enriching

Watched with my 5 year old and my 8 year old. They both enjoyed it and it led to a few inquisitive questions. Mostly just a fun way to spend a few hours together without worry of needing to fast forward and/or mute scenes. Not an overly religious film but still subtly emphasized some nice messages about changing the world, being okay being different, trusting a higher power, looking for signs, family, etc. Parents can laugh and enjoy and feel good about what they are showing their kids.
