Is It Any Good?

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

There are only positive messages in this film, and they will speak to child star JoJo's legion of social media followers. The teen actors put their hearts into the song and dance numbers of The J Team (though their lip synching leaves something to be desired), and who can critique the messages put forward here about being true to yourself and kind to others?

But this movie looks and feels like a stretched-out episode of a Nickelodeon show, complete with artificial settings and superficial characters and conflict. A bright spot is Campbell, who gives a campy performance with silly taunts like, "You are like human glitter!" and "You were out there looking like human jazz hands with a glitter manicure!"

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.
