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 just don’t understand!

How are there excuses to have REAL little boys FULL FRONTAL NUDE in this movie and pan over to them not once BUT twice? The director's couldn’t get ADULTS to portray this scene? Why little boys being naked for the movie? Pretty sure if people found images pertaining to THAT exact scene on their computer, they’d be arrested. That was a completely unnecessary scene!

Great with parental education about issues

This is probably Robin William's best movie. It shows his ultimate talent with lots of improvised lines that make the movie what it is. There are issues in this movie that are good lessons for our kids, but they need to be discussed. These are good learning opportunities if guidance is provided.
