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.

Misunderstood classic

To say this film is a 12 rating is ridiculous. You can shelter your children all you like but they will see worse things than this delightful epic years before they are 12. After all it is rated a PG. I used to watch this at lunch time.
