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.

Too much violence

Opposite of the Original

This is MUCH MORE of a comedy than horror compared to the first film. You may jump at parts but there are so many scenes making fun of the original movie that you will have tally marks of how many times it happens. You will find yourself in laughter at the end and want to watch it again and again!
