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.

One of the best movies ever!

This is a great foreign film that will keep you laughing! I especially love David Kelly as Michael in this movie - but the entire cast is fantastic! A must see, especially if you enjoy films about Ireland.
