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.

A Fun Christmas Movie Albeit Sleazy Character

A pretty good Christmas movie about father who is trying hard to keep his promise to his son. But it is somewhat ruined by a sleazy character that was totally unnecessary with some double meaning language. Overall good message but some uncomfortable scenes, nothing is explicit but just awkward.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
