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.

Scary for my 2 & 4 year old, plus some language

My 2 & 4 year olds found some parts of this movie enjoyable but they were very scared by the bad guys (the mother/son duo who own the chop shop), the street sweepers who sweep up broken robots, and the incinerator that melts down old robots. There was some language we don't allow or appreciate. Things I heard and noted were "jerk", "get lost freak", "shut up", "artsy fartsy", "butt whooping" & "losers". I think deep down there might have been a good message in the movie but it was sort of lost on us. We wouldn't watch this again.

Not appropriate or even worth watching

This movie started out highly inappropriate, with multiple adult humor situations and sexual innuendos. What is the point of putting this garbage in KIDS movies?! We only watched 30min of it and I had to shut it off. This movie is FULL of desensitization, and questionable scenes, within the first 30min - extremely disappointing.

Too much violence
Too much sex

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
