Fran has always did movies that were either pg13 or pg. I personnelly like her as an actor but would not recommend this for children under 17.

Is It Any Good?

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

Living with Fran relies on typical "wacky" sitcom storylines to garner laughs, but overall the show is neither particularly great nor particularly terrible. Some episodes deal with adult subject matter -- including premarital sex and searching for love while raising kids -- which leads to some bawdy dialogue. But if viewers can handle that, they'll find Living with Fran a mindless half-hour of entertainment.
