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.

Cursing was unnecessary

The idea of the movie was good. I had been wanting to watch the movie with my girls for awhile as I had watched the trailer and felt it was a great option for family night. I was disappointed in the language. It was unnecessary. 70s era or not, the children had filthy mouths that didn't add a bit to the actual film content. I realize cursing is a way of life for a lot of people, but it's unnecessary and adds no value to conversation or this movie.

Come on, constant smoking in a kids movie?

Wonderful messaging on diversity, teamwork and friendships. I was concerned with the amount of smoking in the film. If this was an adult film it would be more acceptable for nostalgia purposes but there is no need to promote smoking when the audience is 8 years and up. Made me question if the tobacco industry funded the movie. Otherwise loved it. Not suitable for kids due to constant smoking.
