A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show intends to entertain rather than to educate.
The series features a diverse cast and clean, kid-friendly content. Impersonations often exaggerate physical characteristics and behavioral quirks for laughs. Some potty humor like poop references and the like, but nothing offensive.
Positive Role Models
Cast members demonstrate an ability to work well together and adapt to changing roles and scenarios.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that All That is a reboot of the same-named '90s sketch comedy series that features unpredictable but mostly clean content designed for kids. There's some potty humor (poop jokes, for instance), and impersonations of celebrities and other notable personalities often play on exaggerated physical features and mannerisms, but it's all meant for laughs. Some original cast members are involved in the production -- including Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who produce the show, and others who have on-screen cameos -- so parents who watched the original in the '90s and tune in with their kids will notice content that bridges the gap between the two shows.
Is It Any Good?
This kid-friendly Saturday Night Live-like series cultivates laughs with generally absurd and satirical content. Physical humor, exaggerated impersonations, and culture references are designed to appeal to a young viewing clientele and short attention spans, so parents who watch for nostalgia's sake will find the humor fairly juvenile. Because of the unpredictable nature of the show's content, it always feels fresh even though many of the segments are recurring.
In an entertainment climate that feels increasingly edgy at times, the fact that All That's content is so worry-free is a welcome quality. Families can tune in knowing that beyond the occasional bit of bathroom humor or gross-out joke, there's not much to worry about in settling in to watch this one together.
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.
