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.

Space Cowboy fun

A good family movie. No reason why everyone wouldn't enjoy Space Cowboys together. There's enough there to spark some interesting talk afterwards. This site is usually good in its suggestions, but I quibble with the notion that there is 'sex' in this movie. Sorry folks, but my watch says 2017, not 1917. If that kiss between two kind older people counts against seeing this, then turn on your radios, cause there's no movies for you. I liked this movie ... you will too!
