Critic Reviews for Jennifer Falls Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

There's little zing for starters, though, with the one-liners inching up a steep hill before sliding back down.

Jun 3, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's a fine cast, and one wishes they had something a little more focused to do, something a little less predictable, something that wove the isolated good moments into a consistent whole.

Jun 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Hopefully Jennifer Falls gets a chance to live up to the comedy it's striving to be.

Jun 5, 2014 | Full Review…

There is a funny show in what is there, though, and the cast is likable enough to pull off the pilot's broader moments. It simply needs to live in the now, decide what it wants to be, and stay true to itself.

The network. TV Land proves again that no one in basic cable does a more proficient, professional job of executing and packaging traditional sitcoms.

Jun 4, 2014 | Full Review…

For viewers who find comfort in the familiar, TV Land happily offers more of the same with Jennifer Falls, but it's a slightly higher caliber more of the same than the network's past efforts.

Jun 4, 2014 | Full Review…

Pressly's a sharp comedic actress who doesn't need to play the humiliation game to be funny. She just needs the right show. Jennifer Falls isn't it.

Jun 4, 2014 | Full Review…

So-so sitcom has broad humor, drinking, sexism.

    Move along, there's nothing to see here. The cast is talented, so I must assume the writing and/or direction are the reason this show is so terrible.
