I think this show is funny and the best for when you’re board it will cheer you up straight away.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This reasonably entertaining series features a lot of positive life lessons about parenting and family, but follows a pretty traditional sitcom style. Rev Run and Justine Simmons play fictionalized versions of themselves this time, but still promote the same positive family values they reinforced when their reality shows were on the air. Meanwhile, the children, while not perfect, are overall good kids dealing with the usual challenges.

Like most comedies, the conflicts are lighthearted and the resolutions predictable and superficial. Thanks to an artificial laugh track, the show feels a little dated at times, too. But the cast is genuinely likable, and guest stars like DJ Ruckus and Shark Tank's Daymond John add some interest to the storylines. All in all, All About the Washingtons is worth watching if you like family comedies.
