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.

I’m 14 using my moms account just so you know

Funny because it is not very good. Fun to make fun of, if you know what I mean! Not an accurate copy of Romeo and Juliet: Let’s just say Shakespeare would not approve. Not gonna win any awards, but if you feel sad and want a few laughs watch this it will make you feel better.

Not the tragic version

This is a cute take on Romeo & Juliet, my kids really like this movie. Entertaining for kids & adults, it has a shrek feel to it.
