The film in itself is not enjoyable for adults, however my kids loved it when they first seen it a few years ago! The conversations are not that great for kids to hear, including kissing boobies (Which I, myself found hilarious-a 7yr old saying that!) and how babies are made! My now 15yr old son found the film, in his words, "shit", however my other found it great, and asked for the DVD. So, all in all I found the film appropriate for 9+ just because of the conversations! Many Thanks!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Created and directed by actress Polly Draper (thirtysomething), this high-concept movie is the brainchild of her sons and the film's stars, Nat and Alex. The film strives for the feel mastered by This Is Spinal Tap, and the premise is intriguing and certainly offers a tongue-in-cheek view of a celebrity-obsessed culture that idolizes even the youngest performers.

But most of the subtle satire will probably be missed by tween viewers unfamiliar with the trademark turbulence of many musical groups -- essential background for grasping the movie's humor. Young audiences instead will see only the band members' unrealistic, glorified lifestyle: they don't attend school, they seem to have limitless free time for sitting around talking about themselves, and they often enjoy basking in their own popularity.

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.
