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.

Cute, nice movie, but is important to talk about its message

Not good, not bad either. There are a few good role models so, if your kid is about 8-10 years old, he/she might actually like it, but I would also recommend to talk afterwards about the messages and why is prom so important in our society, making clear that it's NOT the most important thing in your life, and if it is, you have to broaden your horizons.

age 9+

Pre-teen movie.

"Weird" is how the group of 9yo and 10yo I took to see it. However, they enjoyed it well enough. Completely innocent look at realistic teenage drama.
