Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

In this alternately farcical and insightful movie, Chess Club Nerds meet the Cool Knuckleheads again -- and sadly all of them have lived up to the expectations that defined them when they were kids. Back to School, a hybrid of raucous, intoxicated/stoned behavior and sexual jokes combined with an astute look at "grown-ups" who've aged 20 years without maturing, is a reminder of adolescence at its worst. However, by the story's end some of the characters have at least a modicum of awareness. Netflix offers a "dubbed" English translation of the movie, as well as the preferred subtitled version.

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.
