Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    To say that Love Monkey is derivative and predictable is not quite the same as saying it's bad.
  2. 60
    Without its classic, punk, and alternative allusions, the New York romantic comedy would be just another ''Sex and the City" with dudes, another ''Jake in Progress" or ''Four Kings." But with its musical knowing, ''Love Monkey" comes off more like a small-screen ''High Fidelity."
  3. The series is well written, and has its moments.

    "Love Monkey" does have its endearing moments. A few chuckles, even. But tonight's debut clomps all over predictable territory.
  5. Ed and Tom may be similar, but Ed was plenty more satisfying than this Monkey business
  6. The premise of an attractive group of friends living and loving in the Big Apple is not exactly a novel idea, but there's always room for a series that resonates with a distinctive new take, a unique perspective or memorable characters. Unfortunately, this isn't it.

    As with many other instances of men sharing their feelings, Love is better in theory than in practice.

I think it was so cool and anti-establishment. I could relate to all of the characters on the show and I loved all of he music; not to mention the cameos (Martin Luther is so talented). I think this show was way too progressive for it's own good. Full Review »

    This is a very well-written show with lots of great cameos -- too bad it was canceled.
