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.

I couldn't get past 30 minutes of it

OK so I love most kids movies and will probably watch them over and over again with my siblings but this is a exception of that this is a terrible movie and I could not get past the first 30 minutes of it so much effort for so little outcome it's sad really

This title has:

Too much violence
age 10+

not what the trailer advertised

above all the dog being murdered my the cats, drinking, talking about murder and killing it was not as advertised. I did love the human/animal relationship and the friendship between robin and the parrot. the female cat has kitten and trains them to be murderous villains. fists fights were the lighter part. I let my child watch looney toons so Im not a crazy mother who lets my 4 year old only watch rainbows and butterflies. would not recommend this for younger children.
