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.

Excellent Movie

This movie really tells the story of how people are judged in high school and how you can never expect things to fully go your way. Of course bad choices are made throughout the movie but it is still excellent and shows the power of friendship. A little bit of swearing and kissing, one session where 2 teens make out in a closet nothing is shown, no clothing besides a jacket is removed. Good family movie if you have kids 9+
