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.

Excellent family film

This was an excellent Family Movie Night flick. It was fun, the kids loved hearing the dogs talk. What could've been a downer movie with a lonely child turned into a silly, fun, flick with the boy helping his dog friends and making some people friends.

Just wanted to say

The fact that you give this as many stars as Kill Bill is ridiculous. Wow!
