Critic Reviews for The Hotwives of Orlando Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

If you love the comedy stylings of Burnett, Gilda Radner and Kristen Wiig, you will want to visit Hotwives.

Jul 14, 2014 | Full Review…

That's why the Hotwives seems like it could be the lowest form of comedy, making fun of something that is already a parody of itself. However, it's the astute attention to detail and the obvious love of the genre that saves it.

The series is amusing enough to qualify as a good summer diversion-if not exactly must-see TV.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Hotwives is knowing and funny, and a great showcase for many talented comedians who both star in it and appear as guests.

Jul 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Much like a low-budget reality show, Hotwives is a low-budget parody; even the scenes' movement from funny to awkward and back to funny could be seen as a faithful adaptation of the unscripted genre.

The plotlines here - a fund-raiser for a charity that provides high-heel shoes for dogs occupies the first episode - are kind of amusing, but in general the show looks as if it were far more fun to make than it is to watch.

Jul 15, 2014 | Full Review…

As a result, this parody shows just how little these characters care about one another, while revealing how toxic our relationship as viewers is with the Real Housewives.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Hotwives has nearly the same tone, style, and feel as Burning Love, making it a wise choice for Hulu to push so aggressively.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

I have so few complaints about this show, I'm kind of shocked. Everything works for me, from the always-changing opening to the non sequitur "Coming Up" segments to the over-edited flashback clips.

Sep 12, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This is funny stuff -- but only for the right audience.

Jul 17, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The spoof gives some of Hollywood's best comedic actresses room to play.

Jul 17, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Writers Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider clearly know the source material they're mocking and do a great job of getting laughs out of the absurdities of the Real Housewives shows.
