Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 90 Day Fiance may appear mild, but it contains lots of mature themes that aren't meant for kids. There are also lots of of subtle, stereotypical references to foreign brides, plus occasionally some sexist behavior. There's also some sexual references, as well as a few brief conversations about having sex and being abstinent. Drinking is also visible at times.
Is It Any Good?
90-Day Fiance highlights the complicated world of cross-border relationships, which are never as romantic as portrayed on TV and in films thanks to the range of personal, cultural, and bureaucratic challenges they pose in real life. But as cameras capture the various ups-and downs from each couple's 90-day journey, much of the show feels like a series of fish-out-of-water stories as the women attempt to acclimate to their their husband-to-be's culture and way of life.
The motives of the grooms-to-be are rarely questioned, but the concerns raised about each fiance's motives (which usually have something to do with obtaining American citizenship), are often steeped in unspoken stereotypes about women from various countries around the world. The result is a voyeuristic series that is sometimes very uncomfortable to watch.
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.
