Critic Reviews for Are You There, Chelsea?: Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (18)

The characters, including Chelsea's prissy sister (played by Handler herself), start out too one-note to qualify as must-see.

Handler is an acquired taste, but there's no particular taste that has to be acquired for this largely generic chickcom.

If it had the slightest aspiration even to have an aspiration beyond stringing wisecracks on a loop of pure attitude, it would disappear.

This whole show pretty much sucks if not power-slurps.

The whole affair is less cuttingly comic than Handler actually is.

It's a cartoon, funny when used judiciously and quickly wearisome when overdone.
