Critic Reviews for Significant Mother Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

A high-concept but low-funny sitcom about a young man whose mother starts sleeping with his lifelong best friend, Significant Mother is vulgar, tasteless and strained.

Tired, crude sex gags in cougar-themed comedy.

Aug 11, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Significant Mother benefits from amusing bits of dialogue here and there, but it's largely predictable and fails to bring anything new to the sex comedy subgenre.

Aug 3, 2015 | Full Review…

With its nonstop wisecracks about hooking up, body parts, and pop culture references, Significant Mother feels like a Millennial version of Three's Company.

Aug 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Truly, there's little here that inspires much beyond irritated indifference.

Aug 3, 2015 | Full Review…

The one-note premise wears thin very quickly because there is no way that anyone can root for the relationship at the center of it. It is not cool to sleep with your best friend's parent.

The oddest thing about Significant Mother: how hard the show tries to be hip. This, in turn, makes it feel inherently unhip.

While the show does possess some energy thanks to the cast, there's such a numbing sameness to the gags.

Audience Reviews for Significant Mother: Season 1

    Awkward hilarity. Wow an CW comedy that's actually funny!

    What I got to say about "Significant Mother" Season 1 is that it's not a good show. "It's boring as hell." The performances by the whole cast is bad. The directing and screenplay is terrible for my opinion. "I have to report that "Significant Mother" is not a must see TV show."

    This is a bawdy, lighthearted romp of a comedy. Fun summer fare with a heart!
