Allen Gregory

"Allen Gregory" review by Suzanne
Airs Sundays 8:30/7:30c on FOX

I was hoping this would be another good animated FOX comedy, like Family Guy, but it's not. It's worse than any show I've seen on FOX, and that is saying a lot. When their shows are bad, they are really really bad. It's great that they take a chance, but....

Anyway, it's really bad. It's not only not funny, it's stupid, it's gross, and every joke is obvious. I can't imagine one liking it.

Allen Gregory is a spoiled smart kid brought up by two rich gay guys. One of them decides that he should go to public school (probably because they are not as rich as they once were). Allen is just really unlikable. He's a spoiled nerdy kid. Worse, he has a crush on the principal, who is this fat woman. Not only a crush, but we see that he has sexual fantasies. Eeew. That's not funny, it's just disgusting. I don't mind gross humor if it's funny, but this show is not.

I don't like comedies where everyone is completely unlikable, stupid, or gross, especially if they are not funny. Even The Cleveland Show and American Dad are better than this crap.

More Information:

ALLEN GREGORY is a new animated comedy series that tells the story of one of the most pretentious 7-year-olds of our time. When he looks in the mirror, ALLEN GREGORY DE LONGPRE (Jonah Hill, "Superbad," "Get Him to the Greek") doesn't see a child. He sees a young man who is intelligent, sophisticated, worldly, artistic and romantic - characteristics he inherited from his doting father, RICHARD (French Stewart, "Private Practice," "3rd Rock from the Sun"). The pair share an extraordinary father-son bond - a bond that is sometimes annoyingly interrupted by Richard's life partner, JEREMY (Nat Faxon, THE CLEVELAND SHOW, "Reno 911!"), for whom Allen Gregory has minimal respect, if any at all. They live together in a stunning architectural loft, along with JULIE (Joy Osmanski, "Grey's Anatomy"), Allen Gregory's adopted Cambodian sister. Although Allen Gregory has allegedly composed operas, written novels and dated Chloe Sevigny, he's about to embark on his greatest challenge yet: leaving the safety of his father's homeschooling and attending elementary school with children his own age. His journey will be a struggle, not only with the other kids at school, but with the faculty as well. Whether it's the all-out rivalry with GINA WINTHROP (guest voice Leslie Mann, "Funny People"), his by-the-book second grade teacher; his unique relationship with JUDITH GOTTLIEB (guest voice Renée Taylor, "How I Met Your Mother"), his 68-year-old principal; or his desperate desire to be best friends with JOEL ZADAK (guest voice Jake Johnson, "Get Him to the Greek"), the school's popular stud, Allen Gregory has his work cut out for him. With the help of his trusty friend and assistant, PATRICK VANDERWEEL (Cristina Pucelli, "Finley the Fire Engine"); and the support of SUPERINTENDENT STEWART ROSSMYRE (Will Forte, "Saturday Night Live"), who believes the De Longpres are a tremendous asset to the school, Allen Gregory won't have to get his hands too dirty. ALLEN GREGORY is about an outsider. And while he may put on a tough exterior, deep down, all Allen Gregory wants is to fit in. Well, that, and for Julie to run away and never be seen or heard from again. And Jeremy too.
