Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Much of the show's humor is crass and sophomoric, but its clever writing and talented acting are pleasant surprises. There are also some questionable comedic targets in the plot, like the recurring character of a portly Spanish-accented cosmetologist who wanders through the house with tweezers saying, "I pluck bride?"

The show's unrestrained dialogue about sex, drinking, and sexual orientation -- as well as its visible drinking, smoking, and gag violence -- means that younger viewers should stay away. Older teens may enjoy some of the physical humor as well as the funny dialogue, but Big Day is clearly oriented toward adults.
