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.

Great Movie, shouldn't be underrated

Very good decent, family movie and I don't know what this site is talking about but there weren't any sex, violence, nor drugs in this movie at all. I give it 5 stars, yet I give it 10 because of the decency.
