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.

A bit intense but is fine for older kids!

PG: intense action and mild rude humor

Terrible reference to foster care

Overall the movie had positive family messages but the scene when the dad's boss sees mom with her children at work and says to call children services and have those children placed in foster care is beyond inappropriate and insensitive to children who are in foster. Why Hollywood thinks this is funny is beyond me.
