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

The shooting part was inappropriate for 6 and under. There was negative language "brat" etc. that seems startling in 2019. My children do not hear adults talk to children that way.

Too much violence
