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.

Disturbing and ridiculous

As mentioned in the "need to know" section, there's an extremely disturbing plot line where the family dog dies - not of old age! There are too many good kids movies to watch this one.
age 8+

Boring

Cheap movie! Low on actors, really bad special effects Movie seems to be for family but kids wouldn't enjoy it at all.
