Movie Reviews

Laugh Out Loud Funny
Karlea | New Orleans, LA | 10/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I wasn't expecting much from this show - caught it once waiting for another. It was hilarious. I actually laughed out loud - which I have never done with a T.V. show before. I got several other friends hooked. I can't wait to get the show on DVD so that I can watch it start to finish, in order. Much, much better than expected."
Genuinely funny
B. Coleman | 12/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I didn't expect anything from this series - nothing at all, really, I was just bored, and it was available - but what I found was one of my favorite shows ever, right up there with Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies, Coupling (UK, natch). And, you know, within shooting distance of Arrested Development (a far shooting distance, granted, but come on...) But of course it is nothing like them (but it is of course similar to the original UK series). What this is is funny, pure and simple, and, better yet, it's good-natured, with a warm heart, big laughs, and an almost innocent quality, even as it invokes shades of There's Something About Mary, and movies of that ilk.

This is the essential quality of this show: there's no-one you can't like. Only one that's even really iffy on that subject, if that. And it's about time stories are written about love and good intentions (without overdoing it). It's the easiest thing in the world to sit there and think how you're going to cause trouble for your hero, only to say, oh, the mean father, the cruel boss, the nosy neighbor. Not here. And that's where this show has its brains, by never taking the easy way out.

I don't want to invest this show with too many saintly qualities - it's just a sitcom, after all - but it doesn't feel forced, it makes you smile, it's compulsively entertaining. And it's about the most common condition, the one all its viewers share: we're all only human, right? This is a show about "nothing", but the nothing that means everything to the people involved in it. Not because they're snide, or bitter, or sarcastic. But because their hearts are in the right place.

And yet not sappy! That's an achievement right there. How many good-natured sitcoms can really say that? And what this one has going for it, it has going for it in spades.

An important note: This show lasted just the one season. But don't let that dissuade you - no, in fact, it sort of feels like that's the perfect length. So just soak it in, and know that while it doesn't end with an air of finality (they could have easily segued into a second season), it still does end, appropriately. No cliff-hangers. Just smiles, and maybe even a willingness to dive right back in from the beginning."
Worst Week is the Best!

"No comedy has ever made me laugh so hard...type of humor that catches you off guard when trying to determine what will happen next. Absolutely NUTS and is a must see."
Another example of, what happened to.......?
Lonny Kirby | Hilliard, OH USA | 11/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This show was an example of, from week to week, a show that would make me cry from laughing so hard. One of those shows that you would snort, and laugh because it made you snort. Even when you absolutely knew what was coming next, to see it happen was hilarious. But then, the season ended, new season began and it was nowhere to be found on television. Whoever made the decision to cancel this show, whether it was up against a bigger hit (I don't even know what was on other channels in the same time slot), or what, ought NOT to be working in TV programming. I will have to get by watching this one season, over and over. It's that good, but I sure would have liked to have more than one season to enjoy."
