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.

Staring at a blank wall would be far more entertaining

Completely, utterly predictable. Quite literally the most stale conglomeration of sports-movie cliches tossed together haphazardly. I could smell the plot a minute into the movie. Even crucial details (the main character's anger issues, which were probably supposed to be a central part of the plot), were completely disregarded after making a brief appearance for no reason. Good time-consumer for a drowsy six year old, though or a really really dilapidated dog.
