Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that MTV's Messyness is a reality show that features lots of drinking and drunken behavior, strong language and sexual innuendo (including some lewd behavior), and occasional violent outbursts. Most of this comes from internet videos that are featured on the show. There are occasional references to brands like Burberry too.
Is It Any Good?
Each episode of the vapid Ridiculousness spinoff features a panel of B-list celebs sharing some of their their worst moments over glasses of wine in hopes that viewers can identify with their humanity. But most of Messyness is dedicated to showcasing a range of streaming internet clips that are full of silly, obnoxious, and risqué behavior. It's not meant to be taken seriously, and unless you like watching viral internet videos, you probably won't find much here.
