Could be better

I have seen the young Bella Thorns in other mediums and she was very good, but in this show you can tell she is acting in every sense of the word. Its obvious and to be honest annoying and the same goes for the rest of the cast. Everyone seems a little too stiff, like they have never done this before. Also in episode 8 when Jake goes to Austin there is some one representing Texas which is fine but he is in a Dallas T-shirt. If he were really from Austin or just working there hecwoyld be representing the Longhorns in their colors not Dallas colors. You inadequately represented the city of Austin and I find that to be the fault of someone not doing their homework and obviously they were/are not from and/or never having ever visited Austin. Next time please do your homework on a different city you are not familiar with and get the attire and athletic teams correct. Thank you.

The series is all about sex ,money ,predictable love stories

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (10):

This Tinseltown-set soap opera has fun showing the joys and repercussions of Paige's overnight stardom, with a lot of romantic drama that can be a bit much. Some of the relationships in these romantic subplots are predictable, while others are so random and underdeveloped that you can't help but feel that they're simply thrown in to provide some gratuitous risqué entertainment.

Famous in Love spends most of its time showcasing the narcissistic behavior showbiz is known for. Nonetheless, some viewers will delight in the romanticized "Hollywood dream come true" narrative, even if it doesn't always lead to positive things. But despite all the bright lights, this series soon loses its luster.
