Is It Any Good?

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

The ol' uptight-person-in-charge-of-a-big-mess plot line is hardly new or fresh, but absurd, unexpected jokes and delightfully over-the-top acting from the show's female leads make the timeworn device fresh once more. In one scene, Billie and Gene argue over who's the worst: "I thought your favorite movie was Pretty Woman because you love the opera and you're a whore for money!" hisses Gene. "Well, your favorite movie must be Waterworld because it's expensive and terrible like you!" returns Billie. That's some mighty weak wordplay, but the way the actresses deliver the lines as if they're solid burns is hilarious. It's all quite stupid, but the show's not trying to be anything but, and all the actors are so appealing it makes for fizzy fun.

This show is way too dirty for young teens, but older ones who can see the tenderness beneath the vulgar jokes will be charmed -- though parents may want to watch with them to counter any questionable messages.
