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.

Wonderful movie to watch for the whole family.

I thought that this was a really good film. It is a good film that the whole family can watch together and still get something positive out of it. I loved the music and it has a great message about having pride in your heritage and being who you are. It has its funny moments and its tearful moments that make you just want to cry. Overall I rate it 5 out of 5 and I strong encourage people to watch this film.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
