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 adored it!!

i was enthralled throughout the whole movie, having lived for years being a thick madame, and being put down made to feel less than nothing, low self esteem, low self image having to wear hand me downs, and grandma clothes living severely depressed, because along with being a thick madame i am also disabled and in a wheelchair, and ms. MO Nique did more for me and my image than all the counselors in the world i just wish there was a place other than lane bryant i wish there really was a THICK MADAME. and i wish there were places like nigeria where thick is in, and thin is out!!!! totally out.
