Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The Burn relies on roast-style comedy -- i.e. jokes that subject people, places, and things to lots of pointed comedic insults. While it's not designed to be taken too seriously, the fast-paced humor also reflects some of the current conversations in today's political and popular culture.

Ross' comedy style, which incorporates strong language, crude sexual references, and some rather stereotypical (bordering on bigoted) comments, isn't for everyone. But beneath it all is some clever, well-timed humor that occasionally offers social commentary about our culture and the icons who represent it. It's not for young kids, but adults who like this sort of comedy will probably find themselves chuckling.

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.
