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.

Entertaining

This movie is highly entertaining for me but after reading the other parent reviews I realized there is a lot of violence. However, it was funny and had a good message at the end.
