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.

Fun movie from Aardvark

I love anything from this studio, so my opinion is biased, but this has all the charm and clever jokes of other films by the makers of Wallace and Grommet. My kids both liked it for the pirates, and they were able to pick up on the sight gags.
