Critic Reviews for Ruby and the Rockits: Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (5)

Ruby and the Rockits serves up an endless stream of jokes about the rock star life and their self-absorption, yet keeps it all remarkably clean and wholesome. Thanks, ABC Family.

Ruby & the Rockits turns out to be a warm intergenerational comedy that never pushes life lessons in your face. The scripts are made of familiar parent-child ribbing and hugging, but they're given a nice buoyancy by all involved.

So while there's a genial enough beat at Ruby's heart, based on the pilot, the prospect of regularly watching the show is enough to make you "Da Doo Ron Ron" for the hills.

Ruby is clearly meant to be a showcase for Ms. Vega's own singing, but she needs to talk to her manager: the Rockits songs are far more fun than the anemic pop ballads she is given.

Ruby feels surprisingly ordinary and uninformed, put together out of scraps from the old sitcom drawer. Nothing bad matters long here; comfort is quickly restored.
