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.

It's 100% appropriate for kids, but the movie itself is trash. So content is ok for pretty much all ages, but the movie is absolute garbage. Good message at the end though.
