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 best

This movie is better than any of the screwball comedies of the 40s, for one thing, Barbra Streisand sings. And I laughed from the first moment to the last. A great homage to the original Hawks movies and even outdoes them. Loved it.

For the Whole Family

I grew up watching this as a kid in the 70's and it made me fall in love with movies. So when I had kids, I knew I'd want to show it to them, too. We've watched it many times and it never stops being laugh out loud funny. Oh, how I WISH that there were more movies like this out in the world. And as far as kids being exposed to adult themes, romance, etc., this film is wonderfully benign -- I've seen much worse in the cartoons that are supposed to be geared for kids.
