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.

The jokes come quickly and the satire bites

This film is a good time no matter when I see it. Although it is a bit uneven and feels like they just didn't know how to end it, the first hour of the film is solid (and I mean full fist). The film knows what it is and Griffin and Ellis sell it at every turn, but Richards, Kattan and Harris are not far behind, they know their place in this film and execute their roles perfectly. Griffin's fun as Undercover Brother is infectious and he is easy to root for. The jokes come quickly and the satire bites, basically a lovely film.
