Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

For teens who might be interested in a fun romcom or the spectacle of fairy tales, there's a lot better out there. MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE attempts to move a fairy tale into the modern world and a modern setting by putting Mr. Right as a long-suffering lawyer who can't get ahead because of his boss' unethical favoring of his own sons, who do none of the work but take all the credit. Ms. Right is a modern entrepreneur who would rather grow her business than take a backseat, which is a positive depiction of women in the modern world. This setting introduces some positive messages about ethics in the workplace and navigating romance while maintaining professional distance. But the cheap sets and endless back and forth about copyright law, candy business sales, and the terrible scruples of lawyers are not likely to engage kids.

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.
