There's tons of teen appeal in this edgy, social-media story peppered with strong language and sexual references, and if you accept the premise there's actually a pretty funny movie here. D.C. Young Fly is an engaging screen presence, making him easy to root for in spite of his flaws. And he does eventually learn that yes, #DigitalLivesMatter. The script is witty and populated with hilariously-colorful minor characters like the shake-down pastor and the "Hoober" driver. But the plot is predictable, and some of the secondary characters, like the ex-girlfriends and DC's dad and grandma, are cliched. It's also a bit too long. There's that moment with about 20 minutes left to go and you're more than ready for things to wrap up, already.

It's a good opportunity to talk to your kids about what social media means to them, how they present themselves online, and how the actions and words they post affect other people. Strong language, mature sexual content, and the glorified celebrity lifestyle make it best for older teens and up.
