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.

Not worth the trouble

It's not unwatchable or anything. Some of the acting is OK, and the idea is kind of clever. It would be just another silly film, but I did find it offensive the way it portrays Venezuela. Or the fact that it takes a real country and invents absolutely everything about it.
