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.

Why just two stars?

We have three girls. This movie was clean and entertaining. We all really enjoyed it. Yes there was drinking and some smoking. But not by most of the main characters. Not sure why this was only given two stars from this site. We really enjoyed it. Thanks Netflix for adding a clean whole family movie.

Good family movie although the youngest may be uninterested

A good family movie that has no bad language, violence, or irresponsible sexuality. The fictional story about an Elvis Presley type character is entertaining for those 10 and up. Those younger will likely be unimpressed.
