Wanna Come In? champions a certain type of creepy guy who believes a few smooth words and all the right moves make him a stud. Granted, some people are more socially graceful than others, and the advice given to the duds isn't always terrible. But what about the women here? True, they volunteer to go on dates, saying things like, "I'm a really fun date because...," which sets them up to be categorized.

The fact that the dates are being lorded over by a hidden "stud" who watches every move, listens to each word, and does it for money, makes the skin crawl. It's a less-than-desirable introduction to the world of dating for young teens. Wanna Come In? is beyond awful -- it's dangerous. Getting into your date's house -- or, worse, allowing your date into your home -- doesn't represent cool, and it certainly doesn't guarantee safety.
