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.

This movie was thoroughly enjoyed by my 5 year old kid. He cannot watch the Johnny Depp version but has read the book so this was fun for him. There are some scenes like Slugworth’s colourful projections in a song which he found weird and the furnace scene. Rest it was a good experience.

Chocolate Rain

Now as we await the delayed Tom & Jerry 2021 movie, 2017 had 3 old major franchise movie cartoons like MLP, Smurfs and this Tom & Jerry 10 years after Simpsons got their movie. This is based upon the Charlie & Chocolate Factory books and movies with some classic tunes now filled with funny sounds. The Americana icons Tom & Jerry animation had been upgraded to 2017 style. Stream this with your kids if you have an hour to spare. In violence of course tons of slapstick your kids should not try at home, a little out of context and in consumerism of course millions of sweets.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
