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)

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…

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

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

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…

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…

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…

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

    Big Mouth blends sex jokes with puberty relatibility to make one damn good shake.

    Stupid. I would give it a 0 stars. Nobody should see this show.

    It was only aight until the Planned Parenthood episode which stopped my viewing. Where oh where could patients get all of your referenced services (sans abortion) and free to nearly-free birth control for the same sliding scale cost?? Oh wait - the health department. Where many of us work our asses off. And our breast cancer screenings aren't limited to sub-par-at-best manual breast screenings and our positive cervical cancer screenings result in in-house tax-payer-funded treatment instead of just a diagnosis. Let's be real - your issue is the abortion issue, not whether or not women will go without reproductive healthcare, as the home girls of the health departments have that covered. There's other funnyish shit to watch on Netflix.

    The first season was a GREAT start to what I think is one of the best Adult TV show's of all time. It mixes Everything in today's age, with a little family guy, little robot chicken, little south park and a little American dad, puts it in a Rated R Blender and throws in a little "I don't give a F" and out comes the perfect shake of a show..

    I found this show wildly distributing because of the extreme sexual violence and disgustingly inappropriate because it borders along child pornography. It is with deep shame that I say "I LOVE THIS SHOW"! I don't know how these writers could make something as awkward as puberty wildly entertaining!

    OMG!! Big Mouth is the most entertaining and absolutely hilarious animated series I've EVER seen. This show gives a look into what teenagers actually go through when puberty hits. I highly recommend show to all.
  • Mar 09, 2019
    This is the kind of show I didn't know I needed
  • Mar 02, 2019
    Big Mouth's first season doesn't shy away from the gross, awkward reality of puberty which allows it to be one of Netflix's most hilarious outings led by some strong voice acting.
  • Feb 27, 2019
    I love this show! Not only does every episode make me laugh out loud, but it is so honest. I think it is really awesome that this show is able to portray puberty in way that is 100% accurate, relatable, and totally hilarious. Thank you Big Mouth.

    I couldn't bear to watch this for more than a few episodes. Its only peepee-poopoo & dicks and tiddies as far as I'm concerned. Guess I'm just not in the target audience.
