Critic Reviews

  1. You get the feeling that if this show is given enough time to find its strengths and understand its characters, it could be around for quite some time.

    It's a good cast, and Arquette's peculiar charm is always welcome. But I'm tired of comedies about the desperate infantilism of panicked adults. [8 Jan 2007, p.35]
  3. "In Case of Emergency" is uneven, more antic than witty.
  4. 50
    A haphazard farce that fails to find a consistently funny groove.
  5. 40
    In Case of Emergency puts these characters through sadistic slapstick.

    The writing is ok, the acting is nickelodeon level and the concept could be interesting if it wasn't such a dishoveled mess. the jokes The writing is ok, the acting is nickelodeon level and the concept could be interesting if it wasn't such a dishoveled mess. the jokes which could have been funny were all over-acted and fell flat. just wait for thursday and watch my name is earl instead. i can't imagine this show generating any positive buzz and sticking around.

    The show has it's moments, especially with the situational comedy and the outlandish ways things are resolved.
