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.

Great Christian family movie

A great Christian family movie inspirational. Has so many elements in it. I don’t see how anyone couldn’t appreciate it. I do have one issue though as the Bible says the living know they are going to die but the dead know nothing.
