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.

age 9+

Cute idea, poorly executed, not for 6+

Lots of focus on kids' parents being divorced, which is realistic for many kids, but movie puts blame on mom even though she is the parent who comes off as responsible. Dad comes off as goofy & not having things together, but sadly confesses he wishes he & mom were still together and mom is the one who broke things off. It seems viewer is supposed to blame mom? Just didn't seem like a good way to present divorce to kids. Dad comments that mom is 'sexy' at one point when she did some martial arts flip thing..doesn't seem to fit the 6+ rating. Villain calls people idiot/moron a lot, villain speaks down to his employees, makes sexist suggestions to female employee like she should focus on making coffee, belittles other employee (who is the only non-white cast member) constantly Young teen (blonde) daughter made to come off ditzy and dumb while younger brother seems smart.
