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.

Okay...Good but not Great.

I think this movie is ehh. Better than High School Musical. But not by much. That being said, the place this movie lacks in is script. Comes off as cheesy. Also, there is a lot of words that are inappropriate for younger ears. I like the movie but it's in the bottom 50% for me.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
