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.

Great Family Entertainment!

Fun romp with a touch of magic, with many positive role models. OK, some of the characters accept a talking kangaroo just a BIT too easily, but otherwise a very fun, child-friendly (but also fun for adults) plot and action.
