Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

The only real downside to this funny series -- which, in later seasons, follows Howard and Mel through events like buying a house and having a baby -- is its close resemblance to similarly themed movies. Specifically, fans of Meet the Parents will notice that a lot of the first-season plot elements appear to have been lifted straight out of the movie, including the unyielding curmudgeon of a soon-to-be father-in-law, a troublesome family pet, and even stars with nearly identical names (Ben Miller vs. Ben Stiller). If you can see past the parallels, you'll enjoy the show's amusing -- if at times predictable -- mishaps. Just make sure your teens are ready for the sexual references, mild nudity, and occasional strong language.

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.
