Season 1
Big Mouth

Critics Consensus

Big Mouth's simplistic animation and scatalogical humor belie its finely sketched characters and smart, empathetic approach to the messiness of adolescence.

Critic Reviews for Big Mouth Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

Acknowledging the mess makes life easier, and "Big Mouth" acknowledges every disgusting, beautiful part.

Top Critic

Naturally, an honest take, in a frank idiom, on the crude rituals and abject humiliations of pubescence will toy with forbidden thoughts. Big Mouth does so as a matter of course, for reasons organic to its characters.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It might be simple gross-out comedy, but it also feels like we should be talking about this stuff more openly and more often.

Oct 23, 2017 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Extremely clever, original and defiantly edgy ... masturbation, menstruation and everything else is covered in graphic and lurid detail, with mostly very funny results.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

One of the program's virtues is the space that it gives the [female characters' world]. [Full review in Spanish]

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Disgusting? Sometimes. But it's all in service of a noble goal: providing one of TV's most honest depictions of growing up.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Big Mouth takes full advantage of the content freedom Netflix allows, exploring the early days of puberty and how it challenges boys and girls physically, mentally and emotionally.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

If body humor grosses you out, this certainly isn't the series for you. But if you're a fan of Kroll's work, love an excellent voice acting cast, and want to revisit the hell that is growing up, Big Mouth is for you.

Dec 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Big Mouth is able to explore its relatively mundane material in entertainingly creative ways.

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

While Big Mouth might not have the zip of Bob's Burgers, the sharpness of South Park, or the heart of BoJack Horseman, it is a ton of fun to watch and laugh along with, and a worthy contemporary of those animated greats.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Young, dumb, and full of wildly coarse and thoughtful humor, Big Mouth sizes up with the year's bigger releases.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

[Big Mouth] is not a show for 12-year-olds, but it is fun for anyone who felt like a mess as their hormones went bonkers for several years.

Audience Reviews for Big Mouth: Season 1

  • Jun 15, 2020
    A simple show with a great concept and an all star cast boasting it. Big mouth season one is a must see
  • Jun 07, 2020
    This season is actually really funny. Some of the jokes are ridiculous and uncomfortable. There is no real storyline. There is also not really anything interesting, that happens in one of the episodes. It is just comedy. But that still works, because the concept and comedy is so weird and interesting.
  • Apr 23, 2020
    Not all of the jokes in Big Mouth Season 1 hit, but there are so many of them that it's very funny.
  • Apr 11, 2020
    Funny! Not childish at all
  • Jan 08, 2020
    Thats rotten bad jokes in my opinion The characters are not fun at all and these minster things just annoy me I don't get we this show is rated so good
  • Jan 08, 2020
    Big mouth is one of the worst shows you can ever watch, the fact that it has a 100 shows how inept critics have become. The artstyle is honestly one of the worst I have ever seen, the fact that someone sat down and drew these baffles me, the characters honestly gross me out. The jokes are just "haha sex", not good. Just watch Bojack Horseman
  • Dec 13, 2019
    Funniest show I have seen in a while.
  • Dec 04, 2019
    What brings this season down the most are the number of repetitive jokes and side plots that are mostly forgotten and go nowhere. The repetitive jokes are what really gets tiresome and when the jokes are good they get overused, some not even being funny the first time.
  • Nov 29, 2019
    I know I'm horny all the time, I don't need a show to tell me that
  • Nov 11, 2019
    Smart, dirty, and embarrassingly honest, Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg have created something truly special in Big Mouth.
