Is It Any Good?

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

This over-the-top series features people willingly participating in crazy water stunts for both fun and cash. Despite the big splashes, and some colorful behavior displayed by some competitors, the overall series never seems to pick up steam. The hosts' banter often falls flat, and The Miz's antics are more silly than entertaining. Meanwhile, the predictable use of devices like slow-motion replays of high-flying moments and dramatic crash landings gives you the sense that you've seen it all before. Granted, Cannonball isn't supposed to be taken seriously, and will provide some mindless entertainment if you're looking for it. But it doesn't offer anything original.
