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.

Very gruesome

Stupendously Dumb

This movie is insultingly simplistic and unchallenging. If you absolutely need to put this on for your toddler, the bright colors and positive atmosphere will keep them entertained, but anyone over the age of 4 will find this boring and cringeworthy. There is nothing inappropriate; the only somewhat questionable thing is at one point the vacuum cleaner seems to be flirting with the window. The video game-style plot is repetitive and predictable. This movie is only really good for keeping small children under the age of 5 quiet for 90 minutes, and even they'll probably think its dumb.
