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.

Fun for the whole family.

Violence is sometimes extreme and senseless.

Parents Watch it Before You Allow Your Kids to Watch it

Children deserve a better movie. They need to experience meaning and depth. These love sick movies, "cheat to get to the top," "we will put you under a spell with over the top action, noise and barbie doll characters" don't work for my children. I watched them shrink as the movie advanced and I kept checking with them if I should stop it and they said, "no! It was good in the beginning, it will be good again." It just got worse and bland and flat and very loud and noisy. I saw them frown (this is our Saturday movie time btw and they have waited long to watch Tom & Gerry) especially towards the end and when I asked should I stop it, they both said yes! There was an air of relief in the room and their faces lit up again. My girls are 8 and 11 and I had stopped checking out films before I allow them to watch but I am reconsidering going back to that because movie producers are now giving children what they think the want (fast food) and do not realise that what goes into our generation of children is going to come out because cliche as it sounds, we are what we eat. Anyone checked the statistics recently???? Pick one, any...

Too much consumerism
