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.

Not original but fun

I liked it better the first time when it was called "Slap Shot".

A foulmouthed film with a good heart

There are a lot of cuss words in this movie. It has almost as many swears as my kids hear in a normal visit to my parent's house. It's a funny movie about a group of folks who do well because they work together as a team.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much swearing
