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.

Lovely film until the swear word!

Lovely film, my girls loved it, understood the bits they needed too and weren't confused by any of it. Super disappointed that towards the end a single, utterly pointless and annoying swear word is used. Why?! Managed the entire film without a single swear word and then the producers felt the need to drop on in at the end, spoken very clearly too 'doesn't that piss you off'. Well the fact that it was used did P me off! Such a shame as I'd have given it 5stars up until that point.

A Wonderful Movie for Family...

Just watched this movie with my 12-year-old sister and am glad to say it went above and beyond my expectations. It is a family-friendly, modern cross of 'Roman Holiday' and 'The Parent Trap'. Both Stacy and Margaret are extremely likeable and furthermore, both male leads (Sam Palladio as the Prince and Nick Sagar as Kevin) set very good examples as well. The movie is extremely Christmasy and a feel-good movie at that! Perfect to watch with family or to get into the holiday spirit!
