Messy mix of suggestive chats, glitz, and consumerism.

This game is very bad and very weird I thought I would enjoy playing this game, but I had nothing but Scammers weird creepy men messaging me, and people asking me if I have a Snapchat. I think this game should be 14 or 15 and up because there are so many weird people that play this game and I think this game is just very creepy in my opinion.

It’s a fun game to be bold and dress your character with your unique style. You can level up and try to become famous.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (54 ):

Some simulation games are interesting or inspiring, but this one is all about shallow experiences. MovieStarPlanet has very few positive qualities, other than that it does filter common profanity and allows for some creativity in making movies and decorating. It's not clear what age group this app is intended for, as the only years listed during registration are 1999 to 2012, but this app is too simplistic for teens' meaningful use, and the content is not appropriate for younger kids. Answering quizzes about which short-shorts are most "popular" (popular with whom?) to get coins and leveling up for obscure reasons is confusing and negates any activity on this app that relies on skill. It also reinforces messages about consumerism and appearance that parents may not want to reinforce. Ultimately, there are far better choices for kids and teens.

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.
