Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that We Are Family is a music and family-themed game show that stars celebrities and their relatives. There's some occasional sexual innuendo in lyrics and clues that will go over kids' heads, and sometimes audience participants briefly reference illness and other reasons for wanting to win money, but overall there's nothing to be concerned about. Younger kids and those not tuned in to popular culture may have a tough time with the guessing game itself, but can still have fun with the musical performances.
Is It Any Good?
This entertaining, upbeat competition features lots of great singing performances and breath-holding moments as audiences excitedly guess who's behind the sphere. While there's some elation about winning money in We Are Family, it's the musical presentations by the top (and not-so-top) celebs and their relatives that are the most fun, especially when the non-famous person really shines in their own spotlight. The audience participants' individual interpretations of the clues often lead to some whacky guesses, too. But the best part of We Are Family is its overall positive energy, which makes it a good pick for family viewing.
