Is It Any Good?

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

This reality show features lots of over-the-top behavior as couples stress over the logistics of putting together their idea of a perfect wedding. It also shows how easily people can get so caught up in the planning the event that they forget the reason why they're getting married in the first place.

The obnoxious conduct of the couples, their families, and friends overshadows serious issues like prenuptial agreements, step-children, and a lack of employment. It also sends questionable messages about relationships, marriage, and family. Some folks may find the whole thing funny, but it doesn't offer much in the way of positive messages.
