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.

Ridiculously bad

My kids LOVE Tom and Jerry but the special effects were pretty bad. The plot was silly even though Tom and Jerry is normally over the top. I was disappointed for myself but the kids said it was “okay-ish”.
