The review looked at the impact of western film on Zimbabwean adolescents.

The second hypothesis which was utilized is cultural imperialism theory which demonstrates that overwhelming western media substance force their social values on underdeveloped nations. Using qualitative research design, the questionnaire as an instrument, 50 students from MSU Zvishavane campus responded .10 students were also interviewed and the researcher made some observations. Results publicised that western cinema prejudiced the dress sense, sexual orientation and beliefs of youths amongst others. As an outcome of watching western television programs youths now imitate foreign ways of living.
