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 film!

Great family movie to watch with 8 year old and up. It brings up a lot of good topics like bullying, social media, and faith. I liked that faith was part of the movie, but it was just woven in naturally. The movie wasn't faith centered, but it was very present and just part of life. Very good messages for kids to hear. There's nothing inappropriate, even for younger kids. It was just a little above my 6 year old's head.

Good message for kids in the social media age

Good overall storyline for tweens and teens in the technology age. Movie takes a tried and true switched identity storyline and modernizes it with the social media age by exposing the dangers of chasing likes and followers at the expense of others.
