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.

So funny

Watched this with my 10 and 14 year old. Brooke Shields is hilarious. The karaoke of a Brittany Spears song at the end is one of the best scenes.
age 8+
Good starter for kids that want to watch scary movies. Minor jumps and good resolution to the story.
