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.

Brilliant costumes, funny one-liners, and no swearing!

Finally, a movie I'm not embarrassed to watch in front of my in-laws and kids at the same time. There were a few awkward scenes (when the prince was bare-chested in front of the Queen) but overall, this is a fun, witty, and visually beautiful movie. Good story line for my tween daughter.

Mirror Mirror A Good Time For The Whole Family

I loved this movie so much I did a video review of it over at amazon. While it doesn't get rave reviews from the most of the professional reviewers I thought that the move was one of the best I've seen lately.
