A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The couples are loving and eager to express themselves. Even those who aren't natural dancers try hard and do well.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some suggestive movements and butt-slapping. When one couple dances, her skirt is torn away -- though there's another one underneath.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this wedding-themed dance show includes some somewhat suggestive dance movements, including one dance in which a skirt is ripped off -- to reveal another one underneath. In one episode, a member of the wedding party grabs her own breasts (probably to hold them stable during the dance). There's some visible drinking and bleeped swearing, but overall the content is age-appropriate for tweens and up.
Is It Any Good?
Rock the Reception is fun and utterly charming. Lots of the couples have sweet stories to share -- for example, one is planning their big number in honor of the groom's recently deceased mother, who loved weddings and dancing. And while the routines aren't spectacular, they're reasonably well-executed and a tribute to the D'Umos, who not only create something that's fun to watch but also that's well within these decidedly non-expert dancers' limited skills. Ultimately, it's just a fun bit of fluffy entertainment.
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.
