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.

Better Than I Thought

This movie was better than I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be not very memorable and not one to watch twice, but I saw it a few days ago, since my mom picked it for Thanksgiving and I really liked it. I think it may be a good movie to watch annually around Thanksgiving. I think it is okay for tweens, teens, and adults. The story keeps you hooked the whole time and it isn’t very long either. The movie also has both positive messages and role models and not a lot of explicit content. If you haven’t seen it, watch it! You won’t be disappointed.

No big deal, good movie.

It is a little mature but nothing really you have to tell the kids to turn their heads for.
