Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Not quite good enough to recommend, this is a sometimes charming, sometimes improbable story. It has a likable lead character, some intriguing featured actors (such as Joe Pantoliano and Vincent Gallo), and some clever mischief-making in an otherwise contrived plot. The love story is predictable and underdeveloped as well, but viewers will still root for Bobby and Lucy to find their magic together. The title? Another contrivance: A "loosie" is a single cigarette to be borrowed or taken, and "Lucy" is the heroine's name. Peter Facinelli, known for his supporting role in the Twilight series and television's Nurse Jackie, wrote the script. It's clear he's hoping to make it to leading-man status with this movie. Close, but not this time. For mature teens and up only.

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.
