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.

Don’t watch with young kids.

Too much sex. I’d expect more from Charlie Brown.

Concerning messages

Overall the plot was pretty blah but what was particularly concerning to us was the bullying (can we not just cut that out), spending the whole movie striving to be liked, making fun of the "dirty" kid, name calling, and unwanted physical touch. My husband pointed out that Snoopy keeps kissing characters, even when they're mad. How is that teaching our kids to seek consent and respect others body boundaries?
