Is It Any Good?

Quibi's 10-minute episodes are a nice match with the documentary-collage format: It's a good amount of time to dig into one particular aspect of a subject without stretching it out too much. That said, You Ain't Got These feels padded out, with about half of each episode devoted to interviewees talking about how buying sneakers gives them status, but not really exploring the social implications of why that is. Without digging into the downside of commercialism and the "money equals confidence" equation, You Ain't Got These seems more like PR than a true cultural documentary.

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.
