Meant for the inner child in all grown-ups.

"Common Sense Media's unbiased ratings are conducted by expert reviewers and aren't influenced by the product's creators or by any of our funders, affiliates, or partners." Let me flat out say that the review by "expert" reviewer Renee is completely full of bias. Anyone who can't see that this is the case must be blind. First of all, this movie was never created for kids. As Renee has stated it's based on a short lived series created back in the 70's by Sid and Marty Croft so let's face it, the majority of people who probably will be watching this will be those who were alive at that time and love the nostalgia trip. The remake definitely does nostalgia justice, without going too far and ruining it completely. Yes, there's profanity and some of the silliness falls flat but overall it is a fantastic tribute to the classic female super-hero duo, with a great message that girls don't need any special powers to be heroes.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Web personalities who are very popular with teens come to DVD, bringing in-your-face comic mayhem, profanity, and some laughs. Counting on their loyal fans, Helbig and Hart have great fun delivering tongue-in-cheek performances in a slapdash production. It's all so amateurish and low-budget that, upon occasion, characters actually stand in front of a curtain to deliver their lines. The two likable leads give it their all, and they're surrounded by an avalanche of one-dimensional, intentionally over-the-top performances that could only be called silly. You can count on a smattering of witty jokes and a few funny sight gags, and the film team makes an effort to give it some emotional heart, even though it's obvious and ham-handed. With so much profanity and gory comic violence, it's not a movie for kids, despite its Sid and Marty Krofft origins and its superhero title.
