Is It Any Good?

Three issues have the potential to make this a bust in your house. First, players who don't watch movies will be at significant disadvantage. Second, the game comes with 1,800 questions, which is enough for only 35 matches of the shorter variety. That might sound like a lot, but even if you only play for an hour every other night for a month, you'll have squeezed the game dry.

Finally, this version isn't a good fit for younger children because most of the questions are about films that aren't appropriate for little kids (a sampling of titles: Meet the Parents, Kill Bill Vol. 1, A Fish Called Wanda , and Brokeback Mountain). These three stumbling blocks aside, Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action is a great movie trivia game for teens and up.

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.
