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.

Great Family Movie

Our boys 8 and 4 ...along with us enjoyed this movie. Great message too.
age 6+

Nice 3DCG animation. The original 80's version was a total success. The song name is "L'amour a pris son temps" performed by Nathalie Simard in 1984. An English version of that song was available on the dub.

Great and totally awesome movie. Also we recommend the original French Canadian movie of 1984, by Les Productions La Fête (Québec) directed by André Melançon and produced by the legend Rock Demers, the creator of the "Tales For All" (Les contes pour tous) available on a box set at and Amazon. The next one of this collection, "The Peanut Butter Solution" (Opération beurre de pinottes) was the second one. A poster of the first movie appeared on a scene when one of the guys played a drum kit. The two songs are performed by Céline DION and are available from TBS Records.
