Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rank the Prank is a family-friendly show where kids compete to create and carry out the best hidden-camera prank. The tricks are fun and create lots of laughable moments, but they aren't cruel or meant to cause harm. There are lots of practical and special effects that help make the pranks look realistic, but these are created and controlled by experts, and should never be tried at home.
Is It Any Good?
This fun series features young people developing and performing pranks with some high-tech help. Much of the entertainment comes from watching targets get confused, surprised, or alarmed by the staged events. But the series also shows how to take an idea from concept to execution, and how creative you can be.
Rank the Prank is kid-friendly, and the pranks range from wacky to slightly scary. But while exploding trash cans, collapsing book shelves, and short-circuiting appliances create laughable moments, viewers of all ages should be reminded that they are potentially dangerous and shouldn't be tried at home.
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.
