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.

My kids really enjoyed it!

Anyone with kids who watch "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody" should consider buying or renting this DVD. My kids are big fans of the Sprouse twins and got a big kick out of seeing them in new roles and checking out the behind the scenes bonus footage. The movie is based on Mark Twain's classic "Prince and The Pauper". It's a great story and a great movie that is family friendly with no swear words. I'd recommend it for anyone with children or young teenagers regardless of whether or not they are already Zach & Cody fans.
