Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Apple+ seems to have realized viewers' need for what used to be a backhanded compliment: feel-good television. Acapulco is wildly different from breakout hit Ted Lasso, but it's compelling for many of the same reasons. The characters are likable, even when in conflict, because they care genuinely for others. The resort comedy is arguably even more ambitious, focusing on Mexican culture in a way that American television rarely does.

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.
