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.

reviewing just to comment on product placement

I just wanted to correct CSM's "consumerism" rating--this movie has more product placement than any I've seen. Trix cereal, Lays potato chips, Del Monte canned goods, Hot Wheels cars, etc, etc, etc. It was a fine movie to fulfill our pandemic-shutdown need for dumb funny movies. I was pleased with the girl's response to the unwanted kiss.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Fun to share this series with my kids

I'm pretty conservative on what I let my two girls 10 and 6.5 watch. I shared the first movie in this series with them earlier this year. This one came up on Netflix, otherwise I probably would have let them watch the second one before watching this one. There was very little "scary" and just the right amount of "adventure". It had a good message on standing up for yourself. The teenage girl did a great job of standing up for herself with the disrespectful boy. My girls both enjoyed it.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
