i love this movie, literally the best movie i've ever seen in my entire life. it can be a little weird at times but it's all in good fun. it deals with some heavy topics that youngsters might not pick up on.

Great messages

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (7 ):

The message of the movie is fine: follow your dreams, work hard, earn respect. There are amiable recreations of some iconic disco hits ("Play That Funky Music," "YMCA," etc.). The characters are likeable.

But it's all a bland affair. Neither the story nor the humor is original or clever. Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms can boogie, but they're simply not that special.

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.
