Critic Reviews( 3 )
  • It has exactly three things going for it: Zoe Lister-Jones, Rick Donald, and the assumption that their next respective projects will be more entertaining than this. [18/25 Apr 2014, p.102] Show More

  • There is a professional, even a grim efficiency to the jokes.... There are breast jokes, genital jokes, a long oral sex joke, an alcoholic-sorority-girl-defecating-in-a-closet joke. A few hit, many miss. Show More

  • Despite the attractive cast, these “Friends” are a mostly nondescript bunch, so much so it wouldn’t be a shock to find that those who initially tune in after the “How I Met Your Mother” finale ultimately decide that this life experience is best left as a one-night stand. Show More
