Storyline

Freddie Moreno is a young, successful chef who owns his own Italian restaurant in Chicago. He generously shares his luxurious apartment with three female generations of family: his niece, sister-in-law and domineering, still very Puerto Rican grandmother. They all often abuse his good nature, financially and otherwise, without showing him the respect and gratitude he deserves, and so does his practically in-living best friend, Chris, who attracts trouble.

unfunny and full of clichés
13 July 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Freddie was an annoying show and just wasn't funny, the Female characters were in a word useless, they just played heavily made up clichés dressed in tight pants and tops that showed their cleavage and were often neurotic.

The younger one dressed and acted like her older sisters which was just wrong, Brian Austin Green was just an whiny voiced idiot and it seemed like other cultures didn't exist in Freddies World.

Why would the Grandmother (who am I convinced was played by a younger Woman) be the only one to speak in her native tongue?.

I don't believe that Brian's character would 'score' as much or as quickly he did in this show either, this what I mean by clichés, you have heard all of the jokes and seen all of the dramas so many times before.

It was highly unrealistic and basically just a brain dead sitcom, if I was Hispanic this show would have offended me.

Why I watched it for so long I will never know, even though it was Freddie's show, it was ruined by Brian Austin Green, that guy is awful and so unfunny.

What a waste of money this show was.
