Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

High-energy performances, along with slapstick comedy, lively music, current issues, and good intentions, can't entirely overcome the predictable (often stereotypical) concept of women on the hunt. Still, it's fun, certainly for those who are amenable to lots of in-your-face sexual content. After a while the blitz of references to vagina, repeat glimpses of a heroine's genital exposure on the internet, and bikini wax conversations get tiresome. However, there's something to be said for writer-director Nzinga Stewart's notion of "emotional condoms." Special kudos to Kellee Stewart, who lights up the screen whenever she appears, and Meagan Good's all-out, no-vanity work. Also credited as a producer, it's clear how much Good was willing to invest in Love by the 10th Date. And finally, it's a treat to see women portrayed as unabashedly good friends, without the usual back-biting and jealousy that often accompanies stories like this one. Definitely not stellar entertainment, but enjoyable enough for many rom-com fans.

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.
