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.

Shocking

Omg! Was so shocked by the amount of consumerism in this movie! It was just insane! I brought my 8 year old son to see this movie because I thought it would be good enough for him but, no. The consumerism was so hardcore. Bad idea bringing the child.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
