Critic Reviews for Huge In France Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It's hard to square the chasm between the philosophical comedy the show begins as and the discomfiting farce it becomes.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

So-so pursuit-of-fame comedy has lots of cursing, innuendo.

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

Just because something sounds like a TV show doesn't mean it should be one.

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Huge In France isn't a laugh riot, but it has an appealing mix of comedy and sincere emotion, and Gad Elmaleh is a compelling lead.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

At first it might be easy to mistake Huge In France for a gallic exercise in melancholy, but the whimsical Mediterranean-folky score reminds us that this is, in fact a comedy, of the fish-out-of water variety.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Huge in France still isn't quite good enough to justify further investment in what is yet another real-comic-as-semi-dramatic-version-of-themselves series that's less Curb Your Enthusiasm and more Dice meets Really Rob.

Audience Reviews for Huge In France: Season 1

    Loved it. Characters are likeable. Quirky story. Hilarious! Wish Netflix did more than 8 episodes. Waiting for Season 2.

    This show has a lot of potential. There are huge twists everywhere, and there is suttle comedy layered throughout. It isn't surprising this show has a 50% on rotten tomato, probably because the show takes a minute to achieve its full potential. However, after watching the full season, I say without hesitation, that this show deserves more credit than its given. It is a must watch.

    the best thing about huge in france is that it satirizes itself, and similarly plotted shows. those commenting that the story line is trite are willfully missing the point.
  • May 23, 2019
    The laughs take a few episodes to build but by Episode 5 you'll be stifling your laughter on public transport! Just the right amount of pathos too.
  • May 22, 2019
    All of the characters were unlikable, self absorbed shallow jerks and the show just wasn't that funny.
  • May 16, 2019
    Surprisingly touching. A lot of dysfunctional relationships are featured, men are the victims and the criminals. The assistant Brian and the newer boyfriend are great in these parts. Being famous and bring ordinary are both special kinds of hell. Not full of easy laughs, made me think.
  • May 04, 2019
    loved it - skillful combination of humour and pathos
  • May 04, 2019
    Lack of a coherent story. Exaggerated characters. Failure to bring out Elmaleh's comedy.
  • Apr 30, 2019
    Omg so boring and so clichè.
  • Apr 30, 2019
    Such intelligent humor, I love this show.
