Critic Reviews for Grace and Frankie: Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (26)

Grace and Frankie is not entirely worthy of them, which is disappointing, especially since its co-creator, alongside Howard J. Morris, is Marta Kauffman, a co-creator of Friends.

It's hard to classify "Grace and Frankie" except to say it's splendid television.

May 7, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The opening episode creaks and groans under the weight of a malnourished premise that feels like an update of an old movie, say, The First Wives Club. The setup is stagey, the dialogue slack (or -- worse -- obvious).

It's difficult to overstate how good Tomlin and Fonda are here.

Perhaps one of Grace and Frankie's strongest moves, especially in early episodes, is not to dump a ton of backstory on the audience all at once, especially when it comes to the lives of the children.

While Grace and Frankie is in no way perfect, it is still a pleasure watching Tomlin and Fonda vibe comedically together.
