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.

It Was OK

This was a very moving movie. Though it is pretty frightning because it has intese scenes. Also kids might be afraid of the idea of talking to the dead.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great role models
