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 LOVED this movie personally. Zac and Vanessa look adorable together. The only thing is that they kiss for a long time. Kind of making out. But SO GOOD!

The best in the series by far!

My family loves these movies! And this one is THE BEST! There is hand holding and kisses but that's it. There is no cussing, no drugs, and absolutely violence. This is totally family friendly. If your kid is above 5 I think they can handle it.
