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.

Good for older kids

It's a lovely funny story, it does have violence( fights in a bar and shooting guns ) so if your kid is easily scared, you should wait until he is older.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence

We enjoyed it.

Our family of four, including 7yo twins, enjoyed this movie. The boys giggled off and on and my husband noticed the visual references to Indiana Jones. We both enjoyed the many different and interesting camera angles. The story involves more violence, guns and drinking than many kids films do these days, but if you're comfortable with that for your kids then it should be ok. I would say the guns and drinking is on par with the Muppets but there is more violence in this film.
