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’s the best!!!!

Others say that this has little inappropriate scenes but people over 11 should start to feel comfortable with this kind of stuff. My 11 year old loved this movie

Terrible Ending

The ending was the worst! The movie is sad and ropes you in only to end so suddenly! Please don’t waste your time on this!!!!
