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.

Language is wrong on this site!

This movie does say GD which was very disappointing. We always turn off a movie immediately after hearing this being said which is why I rely on this site for accuracy. The 2 sisters are in bed talking and the redhead says to the brunette, "Brush your teeth to get rid of that GD breath.."

This title has:

Too much swearing

Not family friendly.

The only good from this movie is showing family sticks together. The use of curse words, including the GD, is a big no for our family.
