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.

Thought provoking perspective on any entry level position

I found this movie to be a thought provoking perspective on any entry level career choice. “A day in the life” would sum it up quite nicely.

Worst movie I've ever seen

I wouldn't waste any time watching this movie... Nothing happens in it at all and it's the most boring movie ever.... If you wa t to put your child off movies for life then this may well be the movie to do this... I wouldn't even give it one star to be honest... Anyone who gives it more than 1 star is either been paid by whoever made it or fell asleep while watching it and didn't want to admit it.
