      Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Docu about youth-obsessed culture tackles image issues. Rated: 3/5 Jan 2, 2011 Full Review Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat Make Me Young captures the weird delusional effect anti-aging addiction has.

      Audience Member This could have been so much better if it had included some more critique of this industry and culture but instead it was superficial, narcissistic, dribble and an hour of my life I won't get back. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
