Is It Any Good?

Redneck Rehab features all the expected stereotypes that one comes to expect from shows that highlight the "redneck" lifestyle. Some of the activities, (like filling up the back of a pickup truck with water to create a makeshift spa), seem pretty contrived, too.

But underneath all the over-the-top behavior are very definite statements about the importance of family. It also highlights the importance of being proud of your cultural heritage, even if you have chosen to pursue other interests and/or lifestyles outside of it. It might not be for everyone, but if you choose to watch Redneck Rehab, you'll find some very positive messages here.

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.
