Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this version of Elmore Leonard's classic crime caper Get Shorty is intended for mature viewers thanks to its violent content (which ranges from brutal torture scenes to point-blank shootings and bloody corpses) and endless cursing. It also contains lots of sexual innuendo and crude references, as well as visible drinking and cigarette smoking.
Is It Any Good?
Like the popular 1995 movie, this well-written and expertly produced book adaptation tells an entertaining story filled with dark humor. But the series' episodic format allows for a richer and more nuanced narrative, which works well with the more contemporary setting.
The content is edgier than in the film version. Nonetheless, chances are that fans of the now classic film will probably appreciate what this version of Get Shorty has to offer. But there's no doubt that the overall series will attract a new audience.
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.
