All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

It's a sitcom confection with resonance around its edges.

Top Critic

A charming, surprisingly underplayed paean to pop-culture obsession.

February 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The rare comedy-one of a very special sense of humor and a big heart-that has the ability to connect with anyone wondering what else is out there.

January 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Settles for a weak trajectory that isn't good enough to be weird.

January 26, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Rather than milking the outre premise for broad comedy, everyone involved strives to keep the characters and situations grounded and warm.

January 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Brigsby Bear is a cockeyed valentine to creativity, obsession, healing and acceptance.
