Critic Reviews for Home Movies Season 1

The drawings... are as simple as they can be, but still match the vocals' complex expressiveness. Cartoon voice acting is so deeply associated with cartoonishness that the stammering, low-key style of Home Movies is almost revolutionary.

Oh, there's still some very funny stuff here, but it's a few minutes of funny stuff spread over half an hour... It's low-key humor that can be hilarious. While not wall-to-wall laughs, there are enough to make it a half hour worth watching.

The result is laconic, often deadpan humor.

The characters never have straight or clean outlines, but rather squiggles that simulate movement. The animation is a moot point for the series though, which keeps the laughs rolling with biting dialogue throughout each 20-minute episode.

The show has the frenetic energy born of heartfelt dedication.

This show, about an eight-year-old who makes films and his mother (Paula Poundstone), is more than smart enough to make you wonder why it's on UPN.

Home Movies meanders, but patient viewers will be amused.

The great thrill in these early episodes of Home Movies is watching the principals bounce off one another-as much as they can bounce in Squigglevision, that is.
