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.

Learn from your mistakes. Do not "Time Travel"!

Good old fashioned time travel romcom, conveys a good life lesson. "Everything happens for a reason". Apart from few scenes this movie is good for teens, gives many positive messages, to learn and to be a better person...

Heartwarming, funny film!

When We First Met is a hilarious rom-com that examines relationships and fate. There are multiple kisses, including some intense make-out scenes. A couple wakes up together, and sex is briefly discussed. Some swearing. Overall, a hilarious and poignant film.
