Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (13 ):

It's fairly obvious (to parents, at least) that this hour-long special from the Victorious crew exists for two reasons: first, to entertain, and second, to unveil two new songs in the show's repertoire. Not surprisingly, the talented cast manages to do both with ease, and even the fact that the special's plot is geared specifically toward these two new tracks is forgivable in light of its entertainment value.

As with the series itself, most of the content is benign for tweens, and they'll enjoy the characters' wacky predicaments as much as the musical aspect of the show. There's some sporadic use of slang throughout the episode (girls call each other "gank," for instance) that you might want to call attention to and discuss with your kids, and there's precious little content that even attempts to teach any lessons, but, that aside, it's a worry-free source of fun tweens.

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.
