I thought parts of the movie were laugh out loud funny. The main character finds his voice and learns that being honest and being kind are more important than being popular. Good message to reinforce to kids.

Jo Jo Siwa = bad acting

Stop using Jo Jo nick next time choose someone else, maybe get Ella Anderson as she and Jace Norman play brother and sister in Henry Danger. She CAN ACT. Jace Norman was amazing as always but nick you need to up your standards.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (9):

This silly comedy has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments at the expense of poor Jeremy, who suffers the indignity most of us would share if our innermost thoughts were out there for public consumption. From a stream-of-consciousness rambling in class to embarrassing admissions to his longtime crush, Jeremy's inability to control his verbal impulses causes him all kinds of trouble ... until it doesn't. Eventually he learns to harness it for his benefit and to inspire others to speak out for themselves.

Blurt isn't destined to become a classic, but it does offer a solid family-friendly viewing option with a lot of humor and a decent message about self-confidence. Jeremy is an easy character to like, with his affection for family and his willingness to (eventually) see people for who they really are. The story encourages kids to consider the reality of popularity and social status and to embrace what makes them unique.
