Dirty Sexy Money

Critics Consensus

Dirty Sexy Money is forthrightly campy and soporific, delivering a steady stream of sly zingers, but also a discouraging lack of heart.

Critic Reviews for Dirty Sexy Money Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (22)

Krause... makes a fine, amusingly flustered straight man to the cast of eccentrics that Wright and producer Greg Berlanti have assembled.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Pungent and gritty, the phrase Dirty Sexy Money cuts right to the chase. And what an entertaining chase it is. The series is one of the fall highlights, a nighttime soap opera with a broad, irresistibly culty sense of humor.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

It's Dynasty dropped into the tabloid era of the rich behaving badly... As messy as it sounds, the cast is good, the show looks great and the executive producer is Greg Berlanti, a writer whose recent track record is unmatched.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Its humor, which dominates, isn't funny enough, and its occasional stabs at dramatic scenes aren't serious enough. In short, Dirty Sexy Money is Never Very Funny -- and Never Very Dramatic, either.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Dirty Sexy Money knows how cheesy it is and treats that knowledge as a license to push farce into a realm where it becomes undistinguishable from melodrama.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Subtlety can be overrated, Paris Hilton notwithstanding, and Dirty Sexy Money chooses to wallow in other charms. Which are considerable.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Once you get past the show's bad-choice premise, it turns into an entertaining, absurd drama.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Dirty Sexy Money seemed to be second-guessing itself, unable to commit to the camp it so clearly means to be.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

The show puts up its own road block by trying to give some depth and humanity to its main characters. The truth is that the entire Darling family is a wretched bunch.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

I like its cast, especially Krause, Baldwin and Sutherland. As for the others, each character may be slightly caricaturish at this early stage, but there's a Chanel No 5 whiff of potential about this series.

Nov 8, 2018 | Full Review…

With some captivating actors and a juicy, scandal-ridden plot, Dirty Sexy Money is a sort of modern-day Dynasty that's shed its hokey soap opera skin.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Krause provides just the right solid center a show as outlandish as this one needs, and Sutherland and Clayburgh are as strong as you'd expect these veterans to be.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
