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.

There was first, TOO much kissing for kids to watch and my child was uncomfortable the whole way. Secondly, my child really wished it ended off by the princess still going to marry the prince and the American girl getting in love with the dad still It was also very predictable, and you knew what was going to happen.

This title has:

Too much sex
