Critic Consensus: Babes purports itself to be a step forward for representation in comedy, but despite a likable trio of stars, this sitcom's mean-spirited humor persistently laughs at them instead of with them.
Tv Season Info
The good news? Peretz, Boone and especially the talented Sperber are well cast and give off sparks of comic chemistry. But despite a few decent laughs, Babes is inconsistent.
Susan Peretz, Wendie Jo Sperber and Lesley Boone are disarming and show real comedic promise as the sisters. If the scripts ever rise above the inane and give the trio something to work with, this could be an interesting series.
It's hard to get angry when this kind of foolishness is served with the bouncy good-nature of the show's energetic stars.
Even if the jokes were funny, the execution is off. It's like one of those sitcoms the networks bring out in the summer because they don't have anything else.
