Big Shots: Season 1 (2007 - 2008)


Season 1
Big Shots

Critics Consensus

A smug, sleazy exposé on masculinity and wealth brought to half-life by a disjointed cast, Big Shots aims low and doesn't make a dent.

Critic Reviews for Big Shots Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (15)

In a nutshell: There's room for improvement; alas, evidence of such was not offered.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

"Big Shots" is a big waste. If, as one character proclaims, "Men are the new women," then it's time to defend women's rights all over again. Men, women, transvestites - everyone deserves better than this.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Big Shots doesn't place a premium on overall believability. Or likeability.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

As an ensemble of buddies, they don't exude much chemistry. They bat around cliches about marriage and women and the rigors of being a dude, but they seem to want to be with one another about as little as we want to be with them.

Apr 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Big Shots, an obnoxious waste of time that's likely the season's worst new show.

Apr 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The show plays like a cut-rate sitcom, given a glossy drama's production values.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

[F]or this show to work, it will have to interest women viewers in an artificial version of male camaraderie, which could be a tough sell.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Because [Harmon] Feldman has created a quartet of rich guys so insufferable, self-centered and whiny that they make the men of feminist masterwork The Golden Notebook, or even The Nanny Diaries, look positively heroic.

Apr 16, 2019 | Full Review…

If you can sit through the first six minutes of this show without wanting to let your own blood out, then you're more of a man than those guys on Big Shots.

Apr 16, 2019 | Full Review…

If the rap against Sex and the City in its early seasons was that the women sounded like gay men, the problem with Big Shots is that the men don't sound like anyone at all, male or female.

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Is this really how men behave? If so, it's a sorry state of affairs.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Perhaps ABC is betting women will enjoy the glimpse inside the secret lives of men, even if one of them, Brody, spends a lot of time complaining about his wife.
