Critic Reviews for Expecting Amy Miniseries

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9)

At the end of the day though it's hard not to see "Expecting Amy" as little more than a first-time mom wanting to document her pregnancy in the biggest way possible.

Aug 3, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The process of making babies can be, it turns out, strikingly terrible... It is the strangest, most painful and stressful and joyful thing I've ever done. Expecting Amy captures it to an uncanny degree.

Jul 16, 2020 | Full Review…

A mostly superficial fast-cut of Schumer's marriage, pregnancy and life on the road that never pauses to ask, why is she subjecting herself to this?

Jul 9, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

"Expecting Amy" is a funny, frank, open book of a documentary - sort of like a stand-up-comic version of "Truth or Dare," only with the lead wearing a sweatpants instead of stilettos.

Aug 3, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Maybe it's useful to see that the story removed from the backstage version we're witnessing is even more interest and has the potential to allow us a raw and true look inside Amy Schumer, at long last.

Jul 10, 2020 | Full Review…

If Ali Wong radicalized pregnant raunch, Schumer radicalizes pregnant rawness. She refuses to cut away, and, in turn, refuses the audience comfort.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

The series works best as an authentic look at what it's like to be two humans engaged in the complicated, messy business of making a new human.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Because Expecting Amy offers such an intimate portrait, it's almost impossible to separate the project from the person, meaning one's interest level in Schumer going in will likely determine the extent to which this docuseries diary delivers.

Top Critic

That Schumer has the platform to say as much-and that she will likely be scrutinized for doing so-adds layers to Expecting Amy that the project doesn't shy away from.

Aug 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Expecting Amy is as personal, funny and emotional as you'd expect from Schumer.

Jul 10, 2020 | Full Review…

It incorporates Schumer's relationships and her life on the road, as well as a life that's growing quickly inside her - that last one is crucial since it's the one that so many women who aren't famous comedians will recognize as one they've lived.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Anyone who is interested in the way comedy or life works has something to gain from watching this.

    A very modern and honest look at pregnancy and marriage, with the added benefit of Amy's hilarity.
