Soft porn

My 14 yo son brought this to my attention as inappropriate, not easy for a teen boy to do. Once I looked into it I was shocked. How did Disney Plus rate this a TV PG?! It's soft porn.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Campy and overwrought, Liz & Dick is not great art, but it's great fun. Lohan does not disappear inside her character so much as resemble her: Here was a woman (Taylor) who was married eight times (twice to Burton), who saw the world through a haze of vodka and pills, who was known worldwide for her high-handed actions. Lindsay can play that, and does, although her Valley Girl speech sounds kinda odd coming from a face made up to look like a vintage movie star.

Bowler is more natural as Burton and we can buy the heat between the couple, both passion and jealousy as Burton watches Taylor's career surpass his. Those who are old enough to remember the tabloid headlines about Taylor's antics will get a pleasant "and that's the rest of the story" vibe from the movie; younger folks probably won't get what the fuss was all about. But this surely is a pleasant way to spend an evening, in the company of pretty people in gorgeous vintage fashions, behaving badly.

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.
