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.

Best movie I've seen in a long time

Best movie I've seen in a long time. It shows characters and their flaws in the way of a Greek tragedy but more true to life than many movies in the same genre. The dialogue and acting is hilariously relatable, which is probably where almost all of the reviews come from, hitting too close to home.
