Critics Consensus

Two and a Half Men putters to an unpleasant end that continues to beat the dead Charlie horse while spinning an offensive, homophobic subplot.

Critic Reviews for Two and a Half Men Season 12

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

Two and Half Men hit a new low every season and then continued to sink even further underground. During this last season, the show went off the rails in terms of absurdity and offensiveness.

Was that the sound of a piano crashing down on the hopes and dreams of 10 million fans?

Was it appropriate? Classy? I just know I laughed. Great TV or no, Two and a Half Men ended its many lucrative years in a way true to its nature: going for the punchlines, laughing at death, as expensive objects rained from the sky.

Buddy, your show's been on for 12 seasons. Don't you want to send off your characters in any type of meaningful way? Nah. Let's just use the time to get back at someone for something people have long forgotten about.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Just say "goodbye" and leave the "good riddance" to Sheen.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Whether you liked the finale or not, the show doesn't care. It, and Chuck Lorre, went out on the exact notes it wanted to end. And that note, as far as Lorre was concerned, was a #winning one.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Seemingly designed less to provide closure than as an extended rejoinder to those who have criticized "Men" through the years.

Top Critic

May not have been great art, but it was an amusingly self-conscious conclusion built around an unfulfilled promise that at least punished the principals responsible for that unfulfilled promise.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

So really, was Two and a Half Men just a regular sitcom, or was it the greatest episode of Black Mirror ever about a bunch of actors stuck forever inside a sitcom of hell.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A big, crude and unapologetically vulgar finale. In other words, it ended the only way it knew how.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

I swear to God, I don't think I could come up with a worse ending.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Two and a Half Men has always been a sturdy little sitcom.

Audience Reviews for Two and a Half Men: Season 12

  • Jul 17, 2020
    Unwatchable when Ashton Kutcher takes over.
  • Jun 23, 2020
    who could have guessed that this season became totally ridiculous
  • Sep 11, 2019
    The worst season of the show and featuring the worst of all its characters, Two and a Half Men ends in a spectacularly awful mess that insults Charlie Sheen, the audience, and the show as a whole. The final episode is the worst of the series as well, offering no closure or satisfying character moments and replacing it with off-brand meta-humor.
  • May 15, 2018
    This show was ruined after Ashton Kutcher joined the cast
  • Jan 13, 2018
    i ain't cleaning that up.. Two And A Half Men It starts off with some brilliant one liners but doesn't have much in the writing part besides that. The only thing that keeps you invested is the character Charlie Harper which eventually fades out. It could have been way better if not stretched for 12 seasons as they didn't have enough meat in it. It's a one time watch for Chuck Lorre's unique characters.
  • Sep 18, 2017
    couldn't even finish the season as a fall asleep show to half-watch. (0.3 viewings)
  • Mar 03, 2015
    The way it ends is such a spit in the face to the fans who enjoyed the series, regardless if they enjoyed Charlie Harper or not. Chuck Lorre should be ashamed of himself for ending the show on a horrendous whimper.
  • Feb 20, 2015
    Such a stupid ending for a series that used to be so much better
  • Feb 20, 2015
    With a complete bait-and-switch finale preceded by a collection of unfunny and lackluster episodes, it's about time the milking ceases and the show is over once and for all.
  • Jan 08, 2015
    I L<3ve this series. In face I'm a big fan of Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer ;)
