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.

This film is fine but scary for young children.

Great role models
age 11+

Ok movie, but might be too scary for some.

The 13 year old loved it. The 10 year old thought it was way too scary. But if your child can take scary, I am sure someone younger can watch it. (My now 13 year old would have been fine watching it at 10. )

This title has:

Too much violence
