Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Girl Code, which is a spinoff of the MTV2 series Guy Code, offers some witty and irreverent social guidance for today's young women from the point of view of other women who are also making their way through the complicated world of friendship, dating, and other activities. It also offers some insight into the way men allegedly understand and/or misinterpret the unwritten rules by which women should live by, and how this this impacts the way they communicate with each other.

The wide-array of cast members, comedy styles, and subject matter create some funny moments. But the frequent sexual references, crude jokes, and gender and racial/ethnic stereotyping often used to get laughs aren't for everyone. Nonetheless, it offers viewers a chance to hear what people have to say about gender-related subjects that folks often think about, but never really discuss.

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.
