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.

Amazing Message!

Great remake of the original "The Dog Who Stopped The War" (1984) which is one of my favourite movies growing up in Canada in the 80's.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Picked this up for a road trip based on good Redbox reviews. Maybe the main message of the movie is good but I heard multiple “stupid,” “loser,” “dumby,” etc and “somebody kill me.” Makes me cringe every time I hear things like that in a kids movie.

This title has:

Too much swearing
