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.

I found almost no redeeming qualities

I saw the first film and did not care for it much. This film I found had no redeeming qualities except perhaps, Crispin Glover and Georgia Engel. I am a big Glover fan and cannot resist Engel's trademark voice. But even these delightful additions are too weak to save this film. The gender jokes, the heteronormativity, the underlying violence and the us against them attitude is worn thin in this film and it is never made interesting.

Animal Lovers-Caution

I think something parents should know is that there are very unsettling scenes of a poodle being burned. It is a bit hard to watch and you see burn injuries afterwards. These scenes upset me as a kid and I think that these scenes alone require parental guidance, especially if your kid is sensitive or copies things they see in media.

Too much violence
