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.

A sweet, imaginative movie... when you skip 2 scenes

I’m glad I was watching the movie with my boys, ages 9 and 11... I was able to skip over the brief internet bra scene (which wasn’t that horrible, but still), and provide some explanation for why the adults were waking up in bed together. These are true things that happen in the world, so I use them as teaching moments. But still, wish the director had skipped that. For me, the positive messages in this movie were worth it. Consumerism is at large in our society, and I’m glad to see a movie that explores what giving and abundance looks like from a fresh perspective. I also found the saintly visions quite hilarious, and so did my kids. Hint: I turned on English subtitles so my kids could follow the dialogue a little more closely.

Great messages

Extremely offensive movie, if you are Christian.

A little boy sees apparitions of saints all through the movie. One is smoking, and basically tells him that you have to be good on earth and then you can do whatever you want in heaven. Another dismisses the miracle of the loaves and fishes as a slight of hand trick. Preteens look at inappropriate content online. There is a completely random scene of a playboyesque clad woman with an older gentleman In a sleigh that keeps reappearing and has no relation or bearing to the movie. And to boot, the movie itself is boring, with a puzzling storyline and mediocre ending.
