Did we miss something on diversity?

Great Movie for families!

I think this movie is a perfect father and daughter movie to watch. I don't think kids under the age of 8 would really understand it. There is a lot of product placement in this movie, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But it is something to be aware of.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
age 5+

Great Family Flick

This was a cute movie overall. There were a few words I wouldn't want my girls to use, but nothing too profane. The father (Eddie) had some temper tantrums that would have landed him in time out at my house, but the moral was positive. He chooses his family over work and he is rewarded for his choice.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Great messages
