Angry Boys: Season 1 (2011)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Chris Lilley's comedic sensibility is unique, but too often Angry Boys resorts to juvenile, politically incorrect jokes that are more uncomfortable than illuminating.

Critic Reviews for Angry Boys Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (11)

Given time, Lilley could find storytelling strengths to match his inventive array of alter egos.

His wavelength is extreme narrowcasting, and most viewers are likely to find Angry Boys just rambling and dull.

Jan 1, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Crassness, poignancy, social commentary - is a hard one to master, and Lilley doesn't always succeed in tying them together in a way that is funny beyond the amusing cringe of recognition.

Jan 1, 2012 | Full Review…

Angry Boys showcases his considerable talents in the notably imperfect world he's created.

... as true-to-life as it is over-the-top, as hilarious as it is heartwrenching.

It seems unlikely to become a mainstream hit.

They didn't leave this boy laughing, though, or even feeling angry. I was just...bored.

Top Critic

Lilley is one of those creative forces you want to keep an eye on because you'll still be impressed by the magnitude, scale, and vision of his projects, even if the laughs are uneven or even uncomfortable.

Top Critic

Boys is bigger in scope, nearly twice as long and even less politically correct.

Top Critic

By turns painful, bitterly funny and illuminating.
