By Jenny Nixon, Common Sense Media Reviewer

Ho-hum comedy panel game show has some off-color jokes.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The British version of this game show is a long-running fave thanks to its conversational tone and the quick-witted chemistry of its panelists -- sadly, the U.S. version lacks the same charm. Riddled with ad breaks and shortened in length, the rapport simply never gets a chance to take off, much less reach the rapturously silly heights of its predecessor. It could just be a matter of giving the show and its panelists a chance to find their footing, but as things stand now, Would I Lie To You? begs another question: Why bother?
