Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (2 ):

There's not a real moment in this silly, shallow movie, teeming with stereotypes. But if you can get past that, and the fact that the leading lady drinks, smokes like a chimney, and is a "child-parent" at best, the movie has some moments of broad, funny comic moments. The outrageous costumes by Theadora Van Runkle are classics of bad taste, eccentricity, and preposterousness. In a word, they're a hoot. Ms. Van Runkle's creations alone may make this movie worth watching. And, though everything is predictable, obvious, and over the top, there are laughs. Kids will root for the barely functional, well-heeled housewife and the spoiled, poor little rich girls she brings to the "scouting" party.

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.
