Kids say (2):

The cross-dressing concept isn't new, but Work It puts an interesting spin on it by featuring today's women as more employable and economically stable than men. Ironically, it also attempts to generate laughs by featuring male characters behaving according to female stereotypes while they're in drag.

The show's one-liners (and their quick delivery) creates some funny moments. But for some viewers, it may feel like the story has been told before thanks to the popularity of TV classics like Bosom Buddies and films like Tootsie.

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.
