Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is a surprising amount of profanity for a PG movie, and graphic bathroom humor. There are some scary moments as a dog chases small children. There is some boy/girl romance, with one smooch, and a more aggressive kiss where a character kisses a girl against her will. While the cast is diverse and there are some issues early on about gender equality, the film never addresses these ideas thoroughly.

Is It Any Good?
The Sandlot 2 is not the worst movie for kids, but nothing really special, either. It does a good job of assembling a diverse cast, including children of different races, genders, and abilities (a member of the boys' gang is deaf, and James Earl Jones plays a blind character).
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.
