A disappointing letdown
18 October 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As a longtime fan of Chris Lilley's work (I loved We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High for their satirical social commentary on Australian society) I was eagerly anticipating his 3rd series, Angry Boys. After 4 long years of patiently waiting, what I got instead was nothing but a crude and lowbrow toilet humour filled series completely devoid of what made Chris Lilley so funny in the first place.

None of the characters have any likable, redeeming qualities, except for maybe Gran. The Dunt twins Daniel and Nathan Sims from We Can Be Heroes are no longer the funny teenagers we originally loved. Instead, they're just foul-mouthed, vile and gross. Normally I don't mind this style of humour if it has a point behind it but here it's just pointless and doesn't add up to anything. Their grandmother, Ruth "Gran" Sims is just as foul-mouthed as her grandsons but she is slightly more likable than the rest of the characters due to her job of being a prison officer at a juvenile hall, where she acts as a mother figure to the young inmates. Blake Oakfield, a surfer and a member of a Bra Boys-esque gang, is just plain boring. Every time one of his segments finished, I failed to even remember any remotely humorous or memorable moment from them.

But perhaps the worst characters of all were S.Mouse and Jen Okazaki. S.Mouse is supposed to be a pop rapper from Los Angeles, California but Chris Lilley clearly lacks the knowledge of any Rap/Hip-Hop culture and has just seemingly based S.Mouse on some Soulja Boy style music videos he's seen on Channel V years ago. All of S.Mouse's jokes fall flat and make you cringe (not in the humorous way intended though). Jen Okazaki, a Japanese mother of her skateboarding son, has all of her segments based around a single one-joke premise; Her son is a gay skateboarder (even though in reality he is straight) and she is reaping the benefits of it whether he likes it or not. While at first this is mildly amusing, this premise is drawn out over 12 episodes and it gets so annoying and unfunny that by the end of it you just don't care for it anymore.

In conclusion, Angry Boys is a big disappointment from the once hilarious Chris Lilley. It had so much potential to be just as hilarious as his previous two series but it is neither memorable nor interesting. If you want to see Chris Lilley at his best, pop in the DVD of We Can Be Heroes or Summer Heights High. But if you want to see him at his worst, just watch Angry Boys to see what I mean.
