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.

Definatly NOT the video game!

I thought this was based on the video game, but it's not. It's actually based on the Italian cartoon which I watched after viewing this movie. The cartoon is way better. Stick with the cartoon and the LeapFrog games. This movie is inappropriate!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
