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.

So so movie, bit disappointing

This is not a rubbish movie but it is not great. Don't watch unless it is all that you can find. There is a lot better out there.

Entire focus on a "Match" for Jill

I really read the Common Sense reviews before selecting movies for my 11 year old. I read all 19 of them & figured it'd be ok. Not so. The movie itself is hilarious if you like that style. However, what every single review missed is the fact that the ENTIRE MOVIE focuses on pairing Jill with someone. Dating sites, expectations, etc. I was on pins & needles, wondering what innuendo we'd witness next. Some went over my kid's head but ALOT stuck, making for some discussions & questions.... Not cool...
