Critic Reviews

  1. If you think "Will & Grace" got lazy and tired after a few years, with its broad punch lines and broader plots - and you should - "Twins" accelerates the process by starting out that way.
  2. "Twins" is supposed to be a light-hearted comedy, but there is something ineffably sad about Ms. Griffith's struggle to cheat time, a real-life version of the HBO satire "The Comeback."

    Gilbert at least brings some human dimension to the otherwise relentless silliness.
  4. "Twins" is a surprisingly straightforward piece of WB-targeted lowbrow absurdity that's far afield from the sophisticated territory plowed by Kohan and Mutchnick in "Will & Grace."
  5. The only thing this sitcom has going for it is Sara Gilbert.

    The show is flat. [7 Nov 2005, p.41]
  7. The plots are thin, generally revolving around the idea that dumb is smart and smart is dumb.
  8. 20
    A painfully simplistic sitcom that has exactly one thing going for it: Sara Gilbert.
  9. 20
    The whole thing is flush with bright talent and woefully deficient in bankable gags.
  10. The writing here is trite, the premise flimsy and the acting bad.
  11. Awful doesn't begin to accurately describe this sitcom.

    Why not "Nobody's watching" WB ? Why?

    Really disappointing despite the Will & Grace creative connection. Unfunny. I find Melanie Griffiths painful to watch.
