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.

Some concerns

I'm surprised that it wasn't noted in the review that there is a scene with a gun, in which a character is holding it in his hand as he tells the bears which way to go. There is also a bar scene in which it shows characters sitting at the bar drinking what appears to be pints of beer (though supposedly honey). The words stupid and idiot are used several times.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
