Documentary Now!: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Documentary Now!: Season 1 (2015)




Critic Consensus: Boasting a talented cast and smart writing, Documentary Now! is a clever send-up of non-fiction filmmaking, though some may find themselves outside the narrow scope of its humor.

Critic Reviews for Documentary Now!: Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (16)

A clever series that emulates the styles of great documentaries past and applies them to fanciful (nonsensical) people and events.

These parodies are filmed with loving detail imitating the style as well as the look of each film, yet they're not content with being just parodies.

Documentary Now! is so wonderfully silly it may take viewers a moment to recognize just how smart it is, too.

[It's] one of the best laughers on cable.

There are enough moments -- and quite a lot of them in Episode 3 -- to keep this ambitious enterprise on track and well worth a roll 'em.

If the show's creators can keep coming up with fresh takes on their subjects - and their track record suggests they can - Documentary Now! will deserve a long run.
