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.

A bit of a snooze...

Moved through unrealistically and slowly. It did not have the rom-com bounce to it, but perhaps that is a good thing, however it felt heavy-handed and undeservedly whimsical. Perhaps that's just me being a judgey mcjudgerson. A lot of Hugh Grant looking befuddled and skating by on the performance of alleged British charm.
