I like CSM reviews but I found this one angry. You can critcize this for the limited dialogue and simplistic story, but it is a good story, one that has any number of good elements for kid viewing. I don't really see the need to develop a parallel conversation for the mom. She isn't dissed by the dad, her ordeal is well illustrated. Similarly, I don't see the need to drag out the standard racial/economic inequality issues as a template into which to fit this story. These issues are reasonably obvious to the viewer, and the presciption for a problem can be decided upon individually, not preached. That would have made the story less compelling for all.
