Work It: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Work It: Season 1 (2012)



Critic Consensus: Work It is offensive not simply because it traffics in absurd and outmoded stereotypes, but because it brings nothing fresh or funny to the workplace comedy.


Tv Season Info

After Lee (Ben Koldyke) finds work at the firm and recruits his friend Angel (Amaury Nolasco), the two learn to live as women while cherishing their off-the-clock lives as men.

Critic Reviews for Work It: Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (15)

[Work It is] a retrograde shame-spiral of a series that hates women nearly as much as its viewers will hate themselves. But this detestable disasterpiece doesn't even have the courtesy to be interesting in its inanity.

Early word-of-mouth has it that ABC's new Work It isn't very good. Early word-of-mouth is right.

In addition to ethnic stereotyping there are cheap, lazily constructed jokes about women taking over the workforce resulting in a "mancession,'' the apparent indignity of a man grocery shopping for his family.

Work It is just about as subtle as you'd expect - a knuckle-dragging sitcom that parlays racial and gender stereotypes about as adroitly as a chimp parlays Chekhov.

Work It may prompt a grin or two with its initial sight gags. That's not nearly enough to hold this thing together, though. Toot toot tootsie goodbye.
