Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

The Funny or Die team has a sharp wit, but like any mixed bag, some of the items are stinkers. There's a heavy emphasis on drunken behavior, which will surely appeal to its intended audience of twentysomethings, and some people might think the slapstick gore crosses the line from enjoyably subversive to unpleasantly gross. But there are diamonds in the dross, including some biting political observations and some entertaining lunacy.

The website has strong ties to the entertainment industry (it's backed by Will Ferrell), so look for star cameos, including Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel and Fred Willard. It's not good for kids, and sometimes is just not good, but a few of the skits will definitely spark laughs.

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.
