Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a romantic musical comedy that has lots of teen appeal but contains some sexual innuendo, language ("bitch," "ass," "whore"), and drinking (wine, beer). Prescription drugs and references to suicide are occasionally featured. Though it's fun and the songs and star are charming, the show does offer some stereotypes ranging from ethnic references to strong messages about women's relationships with men.
Is It Any Good?
This unique series combines romance, humor, and full-on musical numbers to create lots of laugh-out-loud moments. Thanks to solid writing and good timing, the Broadway-style performances work together seamlessly to create some entertaining zaniness.
However, beneath the bright lights and glitter are the old stereotypes about women looking to men for happiness and dropping everything for the love of a man. Rebecca Bunch's stalker-like behavior only adds to this. It's meant to be fun, but some may find it difficult to enjoy given some of the values it seems to reinforce.
