Just say no.

This was such a disappointment. My 9-year-old turned to me a few times and expressed her frustration with what a bad film it was. Lots of sexist comments and themes, lots of fat-shaming, lots of swear words, a forced kiss. Ugh. Gross. A complete waste of time. Hard pass.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (15 ):

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.
