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 as Disapointing as It Looks!

It might seem a dull movie, and well kind of is. Anna Chlumsky is great however in the movie as well as the two actors that play her brother. Its not in every Blockbuster in town, but if you get a chance to rent a movie, look for this one (just make sure you're doing something while watching it, it won't seem as boring.)

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
