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.

A really good movie!

I really really loved this movie! My kids did too. I'm 18 so I can kind of relate to them. I love how they expressed their true selves!

Wonderful movie!!!! Family friendly!

Yes, there are teenagers in skimpy clothes but it's not even that bad. There is only one kiss in the whole movie, no cursing, no violence at all, no sex, no drug use and consumerism I dont really keep track of. It's really good you should see it! Great acting! Wonderful music. And there is no reason your kids should have to miss out on it because it is totally family friendly. Although there isnt much of a positive effect either but definitely nothing negative about the movie.
