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.

A fun movie and a new expression for kids to learn

I let my 11 year old daughter watch. She's very mature, and we told her what the title meant and what the movie was about beforehand. There was nothing shocking in the movie, and it even had a nice message about self-acceptance. Most 12 year-olds would be fine watching it.
