Critic Reviews

  1. 30
    It's just a flat traditional sitcom built around lazy, repetitive jokes and audience cackles. It's just bad.
  2. Broadly limned, Big Lake works neither as a satire--and it stops trying after the delivery of Josh's back story--nor as an adventure in surrealist comedy, and it is tough to watch the strain for eccentricity.
  3. 30
    The mock-retro sitcom Big Lake, which boasts big-name producers (Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy, whose The Other Guys is currently in theaters) but little in the way of actual comedy.
  4. With this much bad acting and writing, this body of water should be declared a Superfund site.
  5. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry
    Having endured two installments, it's frankly hard to imagine anybody wading through Big Lake 98 more times.
