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.

Not Bad for Kids

While this movie is hardly “made” for kids, there’s very little to be concerned about your kids seeing or hearing. Minimal language, virtually no sexual material, and the “peril” that exists is brief and not that scary. I wouldn’t say this is something you would intentionally SHOW a younger kid, but there’s no reason you couldn’t watch it with them in the same room.
