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.

Had expected it to be a good movie like the first Max movie. However, it is not! Boring, disappointing, and very juvenile for a movie labeled as good for the entire family. There were some scenes where the children in the movie acted out in such a way that I woujdn’t Want my kids under 10 to act like.
