Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dollface is a quirky comedy starring Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls) that explores what it's like to be a single woman. The show uses visual comedy to explore (and sometimes upend) gender stereotypes around women and female friendships. Characters frequently drink and get drunk, and profanity includes "bitch" and "s--t."The comedy can be edgy at times, though the sexual content and profanity is mild. There can be some confusion as to which stereotypes are being played for satire and which are actually being promoted -- parents and teens could have a great discussion about how to know the difference.
Is It Any Good?
Though they're meant to be quirky, the barrage of gender stereotypes that this series unleashes can be confusing. It's hard to tell which ones Dollface is trying to undermine or debunk and which the show actually believes in. For example, the first episode discusses why its important for women to go to the bathroom together at clubs, but then also depicts women stress-eating after a breakup without comment. The problem is compounded because the show is usually more clever than laugh-out-loud funny; it's more interested in doing something interesting visually than in actually making the jokes land.
Did we miss something on diversity?
