Its all right, but is good for teens

There really much to say about the sidemen show, but your typical guys messing around they even say its aimed for teens and not kids

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (5 ):

These YouTubers' popularity individually and as a group will be this show's main draw. A reality shows and stunt competitions go, it's nothing to write home about. Some of the "challenges" are anything but -- flipping a slipper from your foot onto a pile of dishes, or shopping at a Marrakesh bazaar for clothing appropriate to the area, for instance. Given the buildup and the involvement of some pretty big-name stars, this kind of content is a letdown.

Even if your tweens and teens are familiar with the Sidemen's previous videos, this show's edgy content is worth a preview before you give it the thumbs up for them. There's a lot of language, some references to sexual topics and graphic talk of body parts, and a general sense of egotism that follows these internet stars wherever they go. If that's not the kind of behavior you encourage in your teens' entertainment role models, then The Sidemen Show may be one to skip.
