Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

The trouble with this movie is that it tries to mimic such successfully-raunchy films as The Hangover and Bridesmaids but fails to create characters anyone can care about. Older teens may be able to laugh at the repeating pattern of terrible decisions being made by two women whose careers seem to be in shambles, but can anyone believe they'd go on an expensive vacation when their livelihoods are in jeopardy? Would they take an expensive taxi ride to save a bride-to-be they don't even know from marrying a seemingly-bad guy? Burp and fart jokes fit right in. If the writing were sharper and less reliant on unlikely developments, The Layover might be more watchable.

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.
