Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The story, like the movie itself, goes from bad to very bad. Even the very youngest kids may be bored by this witless travesty. Wooden acting (in even the smallest roles), amateurish writing and directing, and even worse editing, add up to some almost-funny sight gags, a few clown-like scenes for Conway (that go on and on), and 97 minutes the sorry viewer will never get back.

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.
