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.

Is this a joke?

This is the story of a biracial, 20-something woman from a close-knit, multiracial family. Sounds good, right? Turns out her fantasy-world, inside a snow globe, is full of milquetoast white folks and the main character is looking for a boyfriend, and her mom is looking to find her a boyfriend. The main character appears in a négligée to sconfront the man her mom has selected for her. There are no children and no music in this movie--just stupid stereotypes. The only thing good about this move is the lack of religious references, and maybe the opportunity it raises to talk about racism, sexism, and stereotypes. . I love commonsense media, but they need another category of offensiveness--cultural/racial/sexist stereotypes.
