Critic Reviews for Big Mouth Season 4

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (6)

Despite the heavy subtext, "Mouth" can also be a whole lot of goofy fun.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

The first three episodes of the fourth season, which take place at the camp, are some of the funniest TV I've watched in a while.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Diving into the layers of who Missy is growing to be only enriches the experience of the series while taking nothing away from how broadly appealing and relatable she is no matter who is traveling along with her adventures.

Dec 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Big Mouth is committed to its humor above all else.

Dec 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Suffice it to say that Big Mouth season 4 hit all the right notes for me. I'm excited to see how this show continues to develop.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Fewer fart jokes and dystopian explosions, more anxiety mosquitos and a fairer study of the entire group we've grown to love over these four seasons: this is the recipe to keep Big Mouth one of the best shows on TV.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Netflix must be proud of such a team of voices, all taking in different personalities and alter egos; Season 4 continues to be a whole lot of fun and easily binge-able.

Dec 28, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Big Mouth's biggest strength is blending fast dirty jokes with deeper issues, which offers compassion without condescension.

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Big Mouth Season 4 is full of new, relevant content that addresses 2020 in the best of ways while staying true to its iconic comedy and raunchiness.

Dec 28, 2020 | Full Review…

It may not be the show's best year, but there's still nothing like it.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It shouldn't seem as audacious as it does that Big Mouth thinks young people have the right to be gross and confused and ready to assert themselves in whatever way they choose, but it does.

Dec 14, 2020 | Full Review…

I struggle to think of another show that examines sexuality, mental health, gender, body image and family dynamics to such a magnificent extent. This is a show that isn't for teens and yet all teens need to see it.

Audience Reviews for Big Mouth: Season 4

  • 1d ago
    "It's me funny Nick Kroll boy" - Nick Kroll This season is the worst one, now I feel like a pedofile, 3.5/50 years to life.
  • 4d ago
    Season 4 of Big Mouth is just as good as the previous 3. One of the funniest cartoon series I have ever watched.
  • 6d ago
    I have watched the series twice over. The social commentary hits home. Funny as hell.
  • Jan 18, 2021
    Big mouth's first 3 seasons were hilarious and a lot of fun to watch. Season 4 was still pretty good but I feel as if the team are running out of ideas. It doesn't have as much effort put into it I thought. It felt uninspired. But it was enjoyable nonetheless. I'm looking forward to season 5.
  • Jan 09, 2021
    Finally the funny sexual liberation everyone deserves! Season 4 is more explicit but nevertheless superbe.
  • Jan 07, 2021
    It's okay. I do think it improved over the last season by not having minor storylines carried over into the next episode but instead know when to stop and having the villain be another supernatural being that represents personification of something negative rather than the head teacher. The jokes work better, are less obnoxious, there are some genuinely good story arcs and decent attempts at character development, legitimately good musical numbers and solid voice acting to the point I barely noticed Jenny Slate had been recast in the season finale. In short, this season is more focused than the last one. I do have problems though, that prevent me from trying to get people I know to watch this show unlike BoJack Horseman, whom I swear that, in my head, most adult animation will be forever stuck in his shadow. For instance, the nausea fuel is a bit overdone, especially during one moment in the penultimate episode involving Andrew on a plane. People get paid to draw that. I didn't like 3/4 of the new characters from the summer camp episode, one using his "duck egg" routine that grows stale, another with an irritating voice whom I know has his fans but his non-sequiturs didn't work for me and a camp counselor who was just forgettable. Other plot threads seem quite rushed such as Nick's evil future self, which I won't talk about lest I spoil it. Maury suddenly speaking about something unrelated for rule of funny was annoying. How does the Hormone Monster stuff work anyway? Especially once a conflict of interest kicks in. The more I think about this season, the more I realize it's better than I thought it would be. I went in with my knife sharpened but honestly, I guess, while I'm bummed about Netflix giving this show preferential treatment over more unanimously acclaimed shows, that there is indeed more to Big Mouth than "South Park meets early-teens Rugrats".
  • Jan 07, 2021
    I would've killed for this show growing up. It's very much a gross-out comedy and pushes boundaries but it's also some of the most nuanced and inclusive discussion of young people's issues I've ever seen on TV. The latest season was great - definitely a bit darker, but captures perfectly the anxieties of 13 year olds. The impression I get from the people complaining about it is that they seem to resent the inclusion of marginalised people as complex characters who contribute to the comedic storylines, rather than as mere props whose very existence is the punchline. Personally I think it's a refreshing change.
  • Dec 24, 2020
    The most relatable season. The anxiety mosquito was the best thing to happen to this show, together with the shame wizard
  • Dec 21, 2020
    as much as i complemented the 3 prior season, this season very bad.
  • Dec 20, 2020
    Oh hell yeah it's back
