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.

Kids find Monsters through a portal and use teamwork to save the day.

Was kind of funny, good not too scary monster movie. My son got a little scared at the end when he thought they may get stuck in the monster dimension which is why I rated it 8+. There was some mild bullying but we have already talked a lot about that and most kids movies have much worse examples of bullying. There was an overall good message of teamwork. Moth man helps them succeed and they work together even though…he’s mothman. The very smart boy is too smart for his regular school, but then struggles when he is the least smart kid at his new school. This gave good perspective as well.

Lot of perverted wording

There are a ton of perverted wordings and pronunciations in this movie. Would not recommend.
