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.

Are you kidding me?

This is total crap. I was really looking foward to watching it. It was just a big fat letdown on all levels. The acting is so crappy it's comical. Yeah, and I thought Robot & Monster was the worst show on Nick. Now it's in the 2nd place. Do you know who took the #1 spot? Yeah, that's right! This crapfest of a show. If someone asked me if I prefer the film or the show, i'd say the movie in a heartbeat.

Common Sense, I'm totally with you on this one.

Nick and DreamWorks should get a "divorce" cause what started out as a good "marriage" (The Penguins of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness) turned out they needed "counseling". I don't know who in the right mind thought that this show would be a good idea. What's next, a show of Donkey from Shrek?! Here's a tip for you, DreamWorks: FOCUS ON MAKING MOVIES!!!

This title has:

Too much violence
