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.

Love the 80’s, McDonald’s, Coca Cola and hilariously bad movies with massive budgets? You’ll love this!

This movie is the best movie to ever get a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s so bad, it’s amazing! I definitely recommend watching it with friends, then quoting it for days upon days as terrible inside jokes. You can get a lot of mileage out of a movie like this. Also, google “Paul Rudd Conan O’Brien Mac and Me”- you’ll definitely find an entertaining waste of your time with the results!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
