Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This upbeat movie highlights many of the positive themes that make MADE the series one of MTV's better offerings, including working hard to reach a goal and being brave enough to be yourself. It also points out the need to accept people's differences and the importance of friendship.

Although some of the characters who behave in iffy ways don't necessarily have to face the consequences of their actions, overall the take away is a worthwhile one. Bottom line? The movie isn't quit as good or inspiring as the series, but it offers an entertaining entry point to discuss some important issues -- including peer pressure and self-esteem -- with young teens.
