Leslie Grossman, serious actress after this one
3 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Those two culprits are at it again, the Nicole Julian & Mary Cherry wrecking crew. The bit with the overdone lipstick stretched my patience too far, once and for all. This takes farce to the extreme outer limits. Beyond my endurance. I mean, if this was funny... But it's not. Not even nearly. Anybody who disagrees with me, well, it's your right, buddy boy, but I pity you, you don't know what real comedy is about.

So, since Leslie Bibb got somewhat of a rest, I am going to be unreservedly critical today, and not dole out a higher score than it deserves.

Carly Pope and Tamara Mello and Bryce Johnson and the new black dude, they do well, and they deserve to be in something better. I do not aim my criticism at them.

My advice would have been:

(1) scale down both Mary Cherry and Nicole Julian

(2) get rid of Bobby Glass, the joke's long over, way, way back

(3) big feud between Brooke and Sam should erupt anew
