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.

Opportunity for Conversation

The storyline itself is fine. Some characters are SCARY looking! The only bad word they use is "damn", no big deal if you aren't religious imo. Sexism is present, they dismiss the ideas of a girl & treat her as a pretty object. An old man character asks for a kiss from the young girl.. super gross. Watch this movie if you want to take it as an opportunity to converse such topics with kids & if weird characters don't easily spook your kids..

This title has:

Too much sex

Sexism

The men in the story dismiss, minimize and even demand affection from the woman. The girl is really smart and knows more than the men but is still treated like a shiny, pretty object. I decided to allow my child to watch and we discussed the unfair treatment she received- it was uncomfortable and cringe-y for me to watch but I tried to remind myself that this is the world we live in so it won’t be the first time she seems sexism in children’s movies.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
