Hilarity ensues due mostly to the comedic genius of those two leads.

Flipped would normally be a very easy comedy to recommend, but the experience of watching a show on Quibi is nothing but unpleasant.

There are moments when Flipped shines... But outside that, their characters are far too grating and one-note for the meta-narrative around it, especially when they run into the people whose money they just stole.

Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson are hilarious in this absurd depiction of two people oblivious to their own mediocrity who nevertheless luck their way into a more successful position.

Forte and Olson are both extremely broad here, practically shouting their lines over one another, but there's a silly vibe that helps make Flipped watchable.

Everything feels so expected. The punchlines land with a thud. Each seven-minute chunk ends before it revs up and gets its energy.

Language, mild menace in hilarious home-design comedy.

Flipped is a very funny project that could have worked as a traditional TV show or feature film and could easily continue for multiple seasons as long as the writing remains as solid as it does here.

There is such an amount of comic force in 'Flipped' that it would have possibly worked in a standard format as well. [Full Review in Spanish]

The chapters have a bit of everything and a solid hook. But when you split into smaller, bite-sized segments, Flipped suffers. Tthe story lags, many of the jokes fall flat, and the cracks show more.

All the bones are there-good stars, solid production company, cute concept-but the laughs never arrive.

The only problem with Flipped is that I want more of it.
April 6, 2020
Maybe Flipped is one of those TV shows that gets better with time, and since the first two episodes of the series amounted to about 15 minutes, I'm willing to go with that idea.
April 6, 2020
While the plot mechanics of the show are little convoluted -- the drug aspect doesn't really kick in until the third chapter -- the performances are obnoxious in a way that still allows for a bit of sympathy amidst all the pettiness and lunacy.
April 6, 2020
Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson are an absolute dream comedy duo, and it's a joy to watch them bounce off each other.
April 6, 2020
Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson play a clueless, narcissistic couple trying to launch its own house flipping show; the series has potential, though it's already clear their characters might wear on viewers' nerves.
April 6, 2020
Flipped delivers witty scenes, backed up by some first-rate acting from Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson.

April 6, 2020
The big swerves at the end of every episode fit in with what [Will] Forte and [Kaitlin] Olson do best: taking their characters way, way too far.
April 6, 2020
Although the story takes multiple turns, one thing that remains consistent throughout Flipped is Olson and Forte's surprisingly sweet dynamic.
April 6, 2020
It won't be to everyone's taste - Forte and Olsen's characters are terrible people, and the show relishes demonstrating that - but I liked it well enough.
