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.

Not for anyone's children. PG-13 at least.

Don't do it. Our 6-year old daughter picked the movie for our weekly movie night and we deeply regretted it just 3 minutes into the movie.. It was only on our watchlist because we saw "Bigfoot Family" first. That movie shows that nWave learned it's lessons. Too bad we had the learn about this movie the hard way. Ignore the "ALL" rating on Amazon and the "7+" from commonsense. This movie is not suitable for children. The moral is not worth the spitballing, spitting, name calling, bullying, disrespect, stereotyping, running away, animal cruelty, kidnapping, mafia thug, first degree murder behavior your kids will learn and witness in the process if getting to the end of this movie.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
age 18+
