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.

Fun family movie

We had low expectations from the trailer, and the start of the movie has the 2 kids speaking rudely and talking back to the parents. A few bad words spoken that my tween hadn't heard before. But then it quickly becomes a silly fun family comedy, with slapstick humor, plenty of laughs and a warm fuzzy ending. The main value message was about family time and family values. We are planning an RV trip soon so this was a good intro to what not to do. I don't like gross humor so turned away by a scene with the sewer pump , but otherwise it was fun though not entirely PC.
