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.

Not too bad

This not the same as the original and not as good but Dennis Quaid plays his part well. There were no women in the original but Amanda Otto did not detract from it at all. In fact that was part of the reason we went to see it. There is not much violence in it and hardly any swearing which is music to my ears. So, all in all it is a very entertaining movie.
