All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The structure, the timing and the humor are all strictly standard, even a little clichéd.

The show promotes a very positive image of family and the African-American community.

June 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The vintage elements in "The Parent 'Hood" are more hackneyed than nostalgic; more insulting than uplifting.
