Big Mouth

Critics Consensus

Big Mouth's simplistic animation and scatalogical humor belie its finely sketched characters and smart, empathetic approach to the messiness of adolescence.

News & Interviews for Big Mouth: Season 1

Critic Reviews for Big Mouth Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

Extremely clever, original and defiantly edgy ... masturbation, menstruation and everything else is covered in graphic and lurid detail, with mostly very funny results.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Acknowledging the mess makes life easier, and "Big Mouth" acknowledges every disgusting, beautiful part.

Top Critic

Naturally, an honest take, in a frank idiom, on the crude rituals and abject humiliations of pubescence will toy with forbidden thoughts. Big Mouth does so as a matter of course, for reasons organic to its characters.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

It might be simple gross-out comedy, but it also feels like we should be talking about this stuff more openly and more often.

Top Critic

Big Mouth takes full advantage of the content freedom Netflix allows, exploring the early days of puberty and how it challenges boys and girls physically, mentally and emotionally.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

If body humor grosses you out, this certainly isn't the series for you. But if you're a fan of Kroll's work, love an excellent voice acting cast, and want to revisit the hell that is growing up, Big Mouth is for you.

Dec 19, 2017 | Full Review…

[Big Mouth] is not a show for 12-year-olds, but it is fun for anyone who felt like a mess as their hormones went bonkers for several years.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

While Big Mouth might not have the zip of Bob's Burgers, the sharpness of South Park, or the heart of BoJack Horseman, it is a ton of fun to watch and laugh along with, and a worthy contemporary of those animated greats.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

One of the program's virtues is the space that it gives the [female characters' world]. [Full review in Spanish]

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Disgusting? Sometimes. But it's all in service of a noble goal: providing one of TV's most honest depictions of growing up.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Young, dumb, and full of wildly coarse and thoughtful humor, Big Mouth sizes up with the year's bigger releases.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Big Mouth is able to explore its relatively mundane material in entertainingly creative ways.

Audience Reviews for Big Mouth: Season 1

  • 3d ago
    What brings this season down the most are the number of repetitive jokes and side plots that are mostly forgotten and go nowhere. The repetitive jokes are what really gets tiresome and when the jokes are good they get overused, some not even being funny the first time.
  • Nov 29, 2019
    I know I'm horny all the time, I don't need a show to tell me that
  • Nov 11, 2019
    Smart, dirty, and embarrassingly honest, Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg have created something truly special in Big Mouth.
  • Nov 05, 2019
    A coming of age story, that puts great characters through a difficult stage of their life that creates a funny, self-aware show that gives all the characters different feelings for what is happening to them. which creates a show that makes us relate to the characters as everyone watching has been through before.
  • Oct 30, 2019
    Genius, sweet and hilarious..!
  • Oct 19, 2019
    This show is amazing. It blends incredibly edgy humor with the coming of age problems we all go through hitting puberty. If edgy humor isnt your thing then you'll probably hate it, but it's coming from Kroll so you should expect that anyways.
  • Oct 14, 2019
    I fell asleep in the majority of the episodes, not even a single laugh though
  • Oct 13, 2019
    Netflix must've personally fellatioed each of these critics because there's not a single redeemable quality to this show.
  • Oct 09, 2019
    I managed to get through one episode, and while points for poking the bear, yeah, uh, gross and cringy. I would be a bit more forgiving if the material was funnier. Also, while I personally don't really have an issue with this (the show is by adults for adults and not meant as pornography), if society's most unforgivable sin is pedophilia, why is this allowed on the air?
  • Oct 07, 2019
    An embarassing entry into the already disappointing world of adult cartoons. While shows like Archer and Rick and Morty shine as examples of creativity and well written comedy, this beckons closer to the worst of Family Guy's decrepit simplicity and lack of taste.
