Ok for adults...not for children under 17

There is no way I would ever allow my 12 year old daughter to watch such filth! I cannot believe your website would even suggest this to me.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Overall, Family Jewels is an enjoyable glimpse into the lives of surprisingly candid, down-to-earth celebrities, and much of the family-related subject matter will resonate with viewers. Fans may be surprised to find that in the company of his family, Gene's ego takes a back seat to his pride in his kids. It's only in scenes that find him among adoring female fans that he turns on the charm and welcomes flirtatious advances.

While mature tones and some strong language rule this one out for general family TV viewing, it might be one parents (after a quick preview) can enjoy with their teens. If so, why not dust off some KISS albums and see if musical taste can cross the age divide, too?
