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.

Such an inspiring true story!!!

As a Christian, and this not even being a faith based movie, was one of the most inspiring movies I have seen in a very long time! The best part it is based on a true story. I think every family should watch this movie together to make them appreciate what they have and what others don’t. It teaches families how to turn to others who are much less fortunate. Such a clean movie also... they rarely make films like this anymore. Please watch this movie with your children! And keep some tissues close by!!
