Critic Reviews

  1. One of television’s rare examples of successful farce.
  2. Shots has some potential. The leads - Michael Vartan ("Alias"), Dylan McDermott ("The Practice"), Joshua Malina ("The West Wing"), Christopher Titus ("Titus")--have chemistry, and there are some funny lines and situations.

    Jon Harmon Feldman’s naughty script doesn’t develop much chemistry among the guys.
  4. 50
    Terrific cast, some fun, but overall the writing is often as dead as Walter.
  5. 50
    Big Shots isn't brilliant. And despite that attractive, well-matched male ensemble, the so-so series premiere lacks sufficient creative zing.
  6. 40
    Big Shots tries way too hard to be shocking and raunchy. The actors resemble kiddies at school trying to impress one another with the latest naughty word learned in gym class.
  7. The hunk quotient is pretty high. But that doesn't overcome the fact that the show is dumb and uninvolving.

    LOVE IT, laugh out loud every time. How can this be canceled? Maybe I miss the ridiculousness of "you know what and the city" but it is funny LOVE IT, laugh out loud every time. How can this be canceled? Maybe I miss the ridiculousness of "you know what and the city" but it is funny to see the true colors of the other species and what they try to get away with, at the same time a sliver of their "obstacle" of meaningful relationships.
