Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

The show -- which was originally positioned as an adult-oriented comedy similar to '70s classic Three's Company but became more family targeted in later seasons -- showcases Curry's brand of humor and features lots of slapstick comedy. But beneath the silliness (especially in later seasons) is a strong message about the importance of friendship and the value of being supported by an extended family. It also highlights the importance of returning to your community and mentoring kids.

It's all pretty mild, but there is some subtle sexual innuendo, usually related to dating and romantic tensions between some of the main characters. Some of the jokes also include humorous references to violent behavior, including fights and drive bys. But much of this will most likely go over the head of younger viewers, and it's generally overshadowed by the show's overall positive message,making Hangin' with Mr. Cooper a decent viewing choice for older tweens and teens.
