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.

Waste of time

This was the first of these films that we’ve seen and we won’t watch another. Ridiculous plot that even my 7 and 9 lost patience with, and a romantic sideline plot with the adults that was unnecessary. I would say don’t bother.
