Is It Any Good?

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

Thanks in large part to extreme stunts that provoke a range of emotions -- horror, fear, shock, wonder, and fascination, just to name a few -- ONE WAY OUT succeeds in serving up instant entertainment and sincere interest in what the charismatic Goodwin and his masochistic crew will cook up next. It's a strange blend of Jackass, MythBusters, and a David Blaine special, and somehow it works.

But that doesn't mean it works for viewers at every age level. Parents with spirited tweens and teens who have the tendency to imitate things they see on TV should be especially vigilant when it comes to letting their kids watch. Because aside from the obvious danger associated with each stunt, there's also the danger of Goodwin making danger itself look awfully cool.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
