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.

A rating of five for violence is a bit too much

Yes, there is violence but not nearly as much as a Tarantino movie or a violent horror film. It is perfectly ok for a young teen. It is a great film!
