Is It Any Good?

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

The producers of this reality show knew what they were doing when they decided to dub the contestants' mansion "La Casa de los Locos" (that's "The House of the Crazies," for all you non-Spanish speaking folk) -- because that's basically what viewers are getting. While Viva Hollywood! does provide an eye-opening look at the world of telenovelas and give big-name Latino stars some well-deserved crossover exposure, the series seems more or less designed to be high on camp and low on meaningful content.

Teens who watch aren't likely to walk away with any important life lessons, but they'll undoubtedly learn that it looks cool to hit somebody over the head with a bottle made of breakaway glass. And that's definitely something to consider.
