Is It Any Good?

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

The entertainingly nostalgic biopic gives Beverly Hills 90210 fans of all ages a chance to put decades-old tabloid rumors to rest by recreating key events that took place during its first four seasons. It also highlights some of the problems the overall production faced before it reached the height of its success.

Fans of the show's more recent, edgier spin-off 90210 might enjoy watching, but it's the loyal audiences of the classic series that will appreciate what's being offered here. Despite some silly, cringeworthy moments, it still offers a fun walk down memory lane for those who tuned in the first time around.
