A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Pro-misfits. Some mixed messages about body size with plenty of fat jokes, but the main character is making the jokes (and the actress is writing them). Female friendships are celebrated, but women also are rivals for a man.
Positive Role Models
The trio of female friends are supportive of each other and try their best to be good people.
Violence & Scariness
Some cartoonish violence, such as a giant light fixture almost falling on someone's head.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Many scenes take place in bars and make light of drinking; one character says drinking "kills neurons" but then shows up later slurring her words and "drunk dialing."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Super Fun Night celebrates female misfits and includes a lot of sexual humor though not so many sexual situations. The humor here is largely lighthearted and absurd, although there are many fat jokes, often made by the plus-size main female character herself. Because of the gentle tone of most of the show, the jokes don't come off as cruel, but parents still may want to watch with younger viewers. There is some cursing, and many scenes take place in bars, where characters drink, sometimes to excess.
Is It Any Good?
It's practically impossible to watch Rebel Wilson doing just about anything and not love her. Something that would be a stale fat joke in anyone else's hands, such as a visual gag with her trying to put on a pair of Spanx, is hilarious when Wilson's involved. Not only is she in on the jokes about herself, she's making them. She finds it funny to present herself as such a clueless misfit loser because it's so clear she's nothing of the sort.
However, the comedy built around her is pretty slight. For example, Super Fun Night milks the concept of drunk dialing, something that might have been amusing circa 1992. Also, though Wilson's Kimmie does need an enemy to rail against for dramatic purposes, does it have to be a skinny female bully? That good girl vs. mean girl dynamic is pretty trope-ish and tired by now. It'd be more fun to watch Kimmie vs. The World than two women pitched against each other and battling for a man's attention. Still, watching Wilson is always a pleasure, and so Super Fun Night is worth a look.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
