Critic Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 4

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

At some point, the gang on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" will no longer be able to top itself, no longer do or say things that are even more wrong than the last thing they said or did. It hasn't happened yet.

Sep 18, 2008 | Full Review…

Sunny is playing to its strengths: using pop culture conventions to provide a jumping-off point for meta-riffs on their implausibility.

Top Critic

Is it a truly great show? I wouldn't go that far, but it's funny and unexpected and original, and that's much, much more than you can say for 95 percent of the comedies currently on the air.

Sep 18, 2008 | Full Review…

"Sunny," which has markedly improved over its four seasons, is certainly much better than any of the network comedies that will debut in the next couple of months.

Sep 18, 2008 | Full Review…

Even this less-than-great season of Sunny was better than almost everything else on TV.

May 23, 2018 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

At least as funny as Danny DeVito's Twitter account. And with nearly as much naked Danny DeVito.

Audience Reviews for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 4

  • Mar 27, 2014
    The antics down at Paddy's Pub just get funnier and funnier in Season 4 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. This season Frank buys a billboard, Mac and Charlie fake their deaths, Dee has a heart attack, and together they all put on a musical. The characters are let loose a little more and become more cartoonish, but this transition to outright cornballness works. There's some really brilliant writing this season, which leads to some incredible comedy bits. It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia delivers a dynamite fourth season that's fun from start to finish.

    The Gang's outlandish schemes and offensive exploits are back in Season 4 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is as invariably funny as it is unabashedly weird.
