If getting an in-depth peek at Tyler Oakley, young YouTuber extraordinaire, is on your kids' or family's bucket list, this film will be very satisfying. It will thrill his existing fan base and encourage plenty of new followers. It was inevitable that the new pop culture stars of the Web would venture into more traditional entertainment arenas, and this is an early example of a documentary designed for this specific audience. Tyler proudly exclaims, "I don't sing. I don't dance. I have no films, no skills. I'm a personality, not an artist." But he's an engaging personality; and, given that he is an out and proud gay icon, it's clear that Tyler's audience is made up of all kinds of kids. There's a wholesome vibe in all the silliness and exuberance. And the moments devoted to his heartfelt reflections on a time in his early life when sexual orientation was a challenge only make his current happiness and success more poignant.
