Critic Reviews for Uncle Buck: Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9)

ABC's Uncle Buck, finally getting on the air a year after the pilot was first sent to critics, isn't the worst show you'll see this year. It's not even the least-funny comedy. It's just unnecessary.

How you like Uncle Buck will depend on how you respond to weird grandpas -- on TV, not in real life.

Epps has his moments, the kids are well-cast and there are a few good lines. But you won't be missing much if your Tuesday nights are already reserved.

Top Critic

A familiar sitcom that has occasional laughs, but won't send many rushing to set a season pass.

June 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the property's latest iteration doesn't provide a satisfactory or substantive answer on why Uncle Buck needed to come back to television.

There's only so much the actors can do to overcome the subpar writing.
