Critic Reviews for Florida Girls Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

Florida Girls is an underbaked concept - the characters spend a lot of time telling each other what their motivations are - and worse, too broad to be reliably funny.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a sunniness to Florida Girls that both belies and counters the darkness of its surroundings.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Florida Girls needs a couple of episodes to truly settle into itself (I've seen four), but the bright, poppy colors and slightly hazy feeling of the series make it an easy binge.

So art imitates life and life imitates art when it comes to Florida stereotypes. But the fictional version is a lot funnier - and way more insightful.

Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a lot in these early episodes that makes me believe that once Florida Girls gets past low-budget Floridasploitation, it could be a funny place to spend a seasonal timeshare.

Jul 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Chinn effortlessly navigates the sensitive politics of class, gender and race in America's most-mocked swing state.

Jul 10, 2019 | Full Review…

There were times I wondered if I was watching a comedy or American Horror Story: Redneck. No matter: I laughed, between groans.

Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…

While it's certainly welcome to see more diversity of socio-economic classes in prime time, it's unclear if "Florida Girls" is more interested in accurately portraying the lower class or just mocking them.

Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Lots of drugs, language, laughs in female-centric comedy.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Florida Girls will make you laugh, and that's about it. What more do you want from a summer comedy?

Jul 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Chinn has managed to ensure that every speaking character has a purpose whether to ruffle the feathers of the girls or put another obstacle in their place.

Jul 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Don't let the vulgar comedic vibes of the series fool you. Yes, you will see more than one blurred out vagina, but the parts of the show that will really put a smile on your face involve a different kind of tenderness.

    Who on earth could have read the script and thought, "Oh! This will be a good show." If it were a reality show instead of a bad dramedy, it would be called "Real Housewives of the Trailer Park" or maybe "The Deadliest Snatch."

    crappy writing, amateurish.

    Being a Clearwater native, and having 2 teenagers daughters, I know people who are all or in part some of the characters on the show. I absolutely love and adore this show and congrats to Laura Chinn on her success

    Loved every minute of every episode! If you dont get it - you haven't lived it. This was REAL. Laura and the girls were awesome!!! Can hardly wait for MORE!!!

    This is THE WORST SHOW I'VE EVER LAID MY EYES UPON! First, if you really wanna make a trashy show about some Florida girls who are down on their lyck, actually use real people! Who are like actually poor! At least that would make it minorly palatable. Second, no, just no, this show uses every single trope I've ever seen and that's saying something. Imo, the worst lifetime movie is still WAY BETTER than this. Thanks but no thanks!

    LOVE this show. It is funny, smart, and as a Florida girl myself, totally relatable. The unconditional love the girls have for each other is really delightful. The casting is perfect. I especially love Kym Whitley. She is a character that is on just enough to keep me wanting to see more. I hope she becomes more than a reoccuring character.

    Hilarious and on the nose. The cast is having a blast. Quotable AF.

    Laura Chinn's Florida Girls is so sick. I was dying! Non-stop laughs!
