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.

Give it a try - you may enjoy it!!

Not bad at all! You'll either love it or hate it. I find that a lot of reviewers seem to dislike films that create a sense of spirituality, for some reason. Sure, it's a little cheesy sometimes, but it has a good message about forgiveness and teaches a few good points about love and understanding. That is the kind of movie kids should be watching, something fun and thrilling with good action but also something to feel and learn from in the end! Although the violence in this is a bit frequent, it's necessary. Some guns are shown and used, a robbery is performed by a troubled teen girl, some bullying to the point of making them cry, an attempted suicide, verbal abuse by a dysfunctional family. Sexual content has kissing, one make-out scene on a bed, cuddling. Language is milder than most PG-13's today (includes a couple sh*ts). Alcohol is briefly used by teens and pills are implied to end ones life. A nice movie okay for 13+.
