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.

Good movie, not much cussing

This is a great movie for older teenagers. There are a few scenes where I skipped because it was uncomfortable to watch and inappropriate, but otherwise it’s a cute movie. There’s only a little bit of cussing, not like most movies out there now!

Perfect Wholesome Date Night Romance Movie

Love this movie because everyone is dressed so modestly. It also has a good storyline. Recommend for married couples wanting a romantic date night movie without all the blah.
