Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Appetizing and upbeat, this show will prove especially bingeable for romantics who crave a European holiday. A Perfect Story arrives with fully realized characters -- and an ensemble of actors up to the task of helping this romantic comedy zip along at a bubbly tempo. Reminiscent of boy-meets-girl goodies like Say Anything, there are good moral lessons woven thoughtfully into this show.

Parents will be reminded of the epic romantic comedies they enjoyed as teens. Mid-teens will like the flirty fun that takes place in Madrid and Athens. Some sexy stuff to watch out for, but it's not going to rock the boat too much in an anything-goes reality-show era. Try watching it in the original Spanish with subtitles for even more spritz.
