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.

January 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.

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