Scandalous is not content to just be a breezy look at trashy journalism but it must also be a statement about the true nature of Americana. And that statement is made with about as much depth and nuance as your average National Enquirer article.
As pop culture narratives go, "Scandalous" wants to be as colorful and fun as a flip through of the rag itself at the supermarket. But in these truth-challenged times, the jovial tone of "Scandalous" all too often outweighs the judgmental.
Maybe this surface-level documentary about the checkered history of the National Enquirer captures the spirit of its subject, but that's not necessarily a good thing if you're looking for genuine insight.
