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.

Teaches kids that there is more than just video games…

This movie shows kids that there are other ways to have fun with friends and family rather than staying inside all day playing video games. The best part about putting down the video games is that you may just find yourself learning something new, making new friends, and getting some much needed fresh air. Very good family movie!

Charming family movie that bridges generations and Staten Island, NY to the rest of the world

My family (including children ages 7, 10, and 12) loved this movie! It is an all-to-real depiction of what childhood is like for many in this digital age. However, the valuable lesson to be learned is that we have far more in common than what generational differences would lead us to believe. There are other strong metaphors to be gleaned, but at the heart of this movie is family bonding, the power and importance of friendships, and a love of and for community. Having spent several years of my life also living on Staten Island, this movie feels so much like a love letter to a place that is truly second to none. I can't recommend this movie enough and also to visit Staten Island, which is a gem in the sometimes overwhelmingly "big" New York City.
