Is It Any Good?

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

This lighthearted but rather slow-paced series features B-list stars doing their best to impress their peers and two master chefs by cooking elevated dishes. But the drama comes less from the competition and more from the reality show-type banter of the dinner guests, which ranges from raunchy jokes to conversations about some well-publicized tabloid scandals. There are even a few snarky exchanges between teams that have nothing to do with food.

Watching each team try to stay calm and prepare something that looks and tastes like a refined meal is funny at times. But despite the presence of chefs Cora and Stone, the celebrities' lack of real expertise about food preparation makes the overall judging process feel disingenuous. Some of the cast members seem to playing up to the cameras, too. Overall, My Kitchen Rules may have some celebrity appeal, but it doesn't offer anything significant about cooking.
