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.

Hilarious fun!

I'm not sure why this movie is getting such terrible reviews. It's a very funny movie and Ryan Reynolds is at his comedic best. It's a great movie if you're looking for a good laugh. Lighthearted and fun. 10/10!
