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.

Best RomCom ever!

I've never seen such a lovely pair as Hepburn and Peck! This movie is phenomenal, and one of the best romcoms ever. There are smoking and a little bit of use of deception throughout the movie, but other than that, this movie is so beautiful (as it is set in Rome) and funny! Eddie Albert is also such an amazing addition to the cast, and one of the best acting in the 50s I'ver ever seen!
