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.

18+ film!!!!!!!

This movie scarred not only my 2yr old, but also my 17yr old, this movie has to be 18+, i refuse to believe that a young child could watch ducks being grossly munched by a massive sea mammal. God bless them for all the bullying the experienced at the beginning of this tragic piece of video recording

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Mishmash of themes

The positive themes of self-image are outweighed by the frightening scenes at the beginning. I'm not sure which audience/age range of kids this movie was targeting, with the odd mix of scary scenes, cute characters, and positive messages.
