A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
The main characters are personal trainers who are constantly encouraging their clients to better themselves. Even the most cynical of them believes that people can improve themselves, physically and mentally, if they focus on their goals and work hard.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Results focuses on two personal trainers and the client they share. It's kind of a romance, but mostly it's a drama about personal connections -- what brings people together, and what can drive them apart. Scenes of characters fooling around include amorous noises and expressions, but no graphic nudity. But there is a fair amount of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more) and drinking, and some of the main characters like to smoke pot. For those reasons, and also because the characters' relationships are presented in an adult way, with complex conflicts, it's most appropriate for older teens and up.

Is It Any Good?
It's kind of difficult to categorize RESULTS. It's mainly about relationships, so it's sort of a romance, but it's definitely not a romcom: There's not much com, and the rom takes effort to tease out. Nonetheless, the human connections here feel very real, thanks to the actors. Characters behave the way that real-life people actually might, and the three protagonists talk to each other that way real people really communicate -- sometimes not very effectively and sometimes not too politely. It's not always clear at first what's driving them, especially Danny, but in the end we see that his motives make sense, even if his methods aren't especially effective.
The weakness in this triangle is Kat. She's the least developed of the trio, and we rarely see her in her own environment. It's less obvious what she wants and why: She exists mainly in relation to Trevor and Danny. But still, she feels authentic. It's not always clear where Results is headed, but the characters will make you curious enough to follow along.
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.
