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 actually couldn’t watch this whole movie. Inappropriate and rude “humor”, Santa is fat-shamed, his butt crack is shown, all within the first few minutes. About as far from a feel-good Christmas movie as you can get.

Would NOT recommend for young children. The Cat roommate not only is dressed in a way that's not necessary at all for the show or theme, she also says "this pussy's beat" along w a couple other sexual innuendos. Was watching this w my 3 & 5 yr olds & was fr completely blindsided by some of the random references that I personally am not cool w bein added to shows my boys watch. The only part that we liked was the gummy bear song (in which we busted out a dance party in our living room). Just wanted others to know! Hope this helps.
