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.

It's really fun but a little scary

My favorite part was when Hannah told Jack that he was making his lies come true I want people to know that it's so fun because you think that it's real. The aliens are a little scary and I thought Jack would be caught.

Totally unlikeable lead character

While the movie does offer a great message overall, I found the lead character really annoying. It captured our attention for the entire thing, and there was nothing wrong with it.
