Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

Strong, authentic performances and great chemistry between the two leads lend the otherwise tame Unexpected some spirit. Smulders and Bean rescue the movie from a straightforward script that doesn't stray from a road well-worn by other films. But rescuing a movie is one thing; elevating it is another task altogether -- and one that's too formidable for Unexpected. The juxtaposition of teacher and student, each having to learn a similar lesson but given different tools and circumstances, is rich fodder, but unfortunately, Unexpected never really lives up to its name.

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.
