Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Although the delivery is a bit obvious and heavy-handed, this sweet film insightfully and respectfully captures the realities and frustrations of being a deaf person in a hearing world. No Ordinary Hero: The SuperDeafy Movie is a bit cheesy and probably won't appeal to an older audience, but it's a marvelous way for younger kids to develop empathy toward those who are different, as well as see that they want to be treated as equals and don't want to be pitied. Although it's campy and silly, it always treats the characters respectfully.

Parents will love the messages, but kids may become a bit bored toward the end as the plot gets dragged out a bit too long. But the characters are endearing, and there's enough slapstick to keep kids laughing and hopefully learning a few things along the way.

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.
