The Moodys: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Moodys: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: A solid cast and some decent jokes set the table, but The Moodys's stale take on a curmudgeonly Christmas is too bah humbug in a bad way.

Critic Reviews for The Moodys: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

It's not always an optimum blend of merriment and miscreants. Still, The Moodys earns its candy cane stripes as a Christmas mini-series with bite.

There's no reason to get invested in the family.

The nicest surprise is Denis Leary's low-key and slow-burn performance as family man Sean Sr., for once not the most broken person in any given room.

Laugh out loud funny and has a heart as big as its dramatic family moments.

December 16, 2019 | Full Review…

A six-episode, three-night event for the Christmas holiday is so insane that it could only work on a broadcast network that has no corporate master to answer to at this moment.

While not as funny as it should be, the stars of The Moodys all give fun performances and the family storyline is warm enough to make for worthwhile holiday viewing.
