Acknowledging the mess makes life easier, and "Big Mouth" acknowledges every disgusting, beautiful part.
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.
Big Mouth is able to explore its relatively mundane material in entertainingly creative ways.
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.
Big Mouth may not add a lot of fresh wisdom to the portrayal of adolescent sexual awareness, but it also doesn't wallow in mere dirty jokes. It gives its characters, male and female, some rueful wit in their vigorous pursuit of carnal pleasure.
