National Lampoon presents a musical parody of the hit 80's/90's sitcom, starring Perez Hilton as Danny Tanner and answering the age-old question: "How many catchphrases can one family have?!"

Theater In The Now

"'Full House the Musical' is by no means perfect. But 'Full House the Musical' will make you laugh and get nostalgic and eager for the sequel series on Netflix. If 'Full House the Musical' wants to have a long run and capitalize on that series, Bob and Tobly McSmith have some cleaning up to do." Full Review

The Globe and Mail

for a previous production "Embraces its own badness as enthusiastically as the Tanner clan used to engage in cure-all hugs. It’s a fetid mess of ugly wigs, tasteless jokes, gross sight gags and grotesque performances. All that, plus fellating puppets. It’s almost as if Saget, who in his stand-up routines likes to be dirty for dirty’s sake, had written its perverted script." Full Review

Now Toronto

for a previous production "Two audience members sitting next to me lasted only half an hour before walking out, and they weren't the only ones. Perhaps the show has a future as some kind of psychological endurance test? Pure, unadulterated WTF from start to finish, 'Full House The Musical!,' which heads next to off-Broadway, deserves a special place on the mantle of terrible things." Full Review

Mooney On Theatre

for a previous production "I didn’t like this show. I think it needs more work. I felt like I watched an overpriced fringe show stuck in it’s first draft. It’s ok to be silly and make ridiculous jokes, but the concept as a whole has to be funny for that to work and I just felt it fell flat in that department...At least you’re supporting the team members who are stuck in this unpolished show. Even if we had to suffer through it a little bit." Full Review

The Toronto Star

for a previous production "'Full House! The Musical!' is not very good. But the producers likely won’t be bothered by a negative review, no matter how many unresolved plot points, offensive portrayals of young women or moments of just plain bad comedy we can list...It’s hard to imagine what producers thought they were adding to Toronto’s cultural scene with a rough, low-budget preview. There are plenty of local comedians doing TV-themed improv shows, and doing it better. Please give them your money instead." Full Review

Digital Journal

for a previous production "This National Lampoon version of 'Full House' is more like a demolition site. It’s not even ready for Bob Saget’s basement. Let’s just say that after intermission, it was no longer a full house. (The ones who left were the lucky ones. As bad as the first half is, the second half is so bad that it makes you yearn for the wit and charm of the first)...'Full House: The Musical!' is so obnoxious and mean-spirited that it makes you realize what a bold absurdist masterwork 'Cannibal! The Musical' ... Full Review

Raunchy, Indulgent, Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if You have a burning desire to see a brutal parody of a sweet TV series. The one saving grace is clever makeup and wigs.

Don't see it if You don't care for nasty raunchy language and mean spirited jokes and pathetic attempts at real comedy.

75
Funny, Original, Clever, Quirky

See it if You remember the series. See it because it may surprise you. Actually funnier than I expected. No, Perez wasn't there which was ok with me.

Don't see it if You expect the sweetness of the series. If raw, raunchy, taboo isn't for you, don't see it.

Don't see it if you don't want to waste your time

Funny, Edgy, Raunchy, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You'd like an edgy, vulgar, and darker version of the beloved sitcom. You will laugh, but after a while, it's gratuitious.

Don't see it if You have fond memories of the sitcom and expect more of the same. After a while, it becomes totally predictable.

Raunchy, Banal, Excruciating

See it if You like wasting your time. Check out Bayside: The Musical instead.

Don't see it if You have a brain in your head.

See it if You like really raunchy parody comedies.

Don't see it if You don't like overly-raunchy comedies.

Funny, Delightful

See it if liked this but did not compare to Bayside.

Don't see it if I went to see it because I grew up on Full House. Slightly disappointed that the day I went Perez wasn't there.

79
Funny, Edgy, Raunchy

See it if you liked Full House and think you can laugh at a raunchy version of it; if you like the humor of National Lampoons.

Don't see it if you don't want to ruin your childhood a little by tarnishing the wholesome image of Full House, or you don't like crude humor.

Disappointing, Insipid, Fluffy

See it if you want to see a sad attempt at comedy

Don't see it if you want to laugh

Raunchy, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if It's raining really, really hard and you have no place else where you can stay dry.

Don't see it if there is any other place you can possibly be. This is painful. For about five minutes we were hopeful, but those minutes were not together.

55
Funny, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You're a die-hard full house fan!

Don't see it if You're not into cliches. Or if you're expecting nostalgia experiences (it doesn't feel that way at all).

Banal, Disappointing, Cliched, Dated

See it if You don't value your time.

Don't see it if You value your time--it's nothing like the TV show. Don't see it.

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid, Gawd awful

See it if you want to waste your time and money! Show is uber raunchy, wasn't funny. There are so many other shows to see in NYC. Save yourself.

Don't see it if you value your time. There are better ways to entertain yourself. This parody is not funny, very cheesy.

Disappointing

See it if you want to die.

Don't see it if you want to live

Quirky, Raunchy, Banal, Cliched

See it if you are a diehard fan of Full House and you enjoy raunchy parody. The writing is not amazing, but the actors seem to be enjoying the ride.

Don't see it if you have expectations of polished entertainment. More in line with an over-rehearsed amateur improv group. A drink (or several) will help.

Insipid

See it if You like Full House

Don't see it if you want to laugh. This show is not funny.

Funny, Quirky, Raunchy, Hilarious, Entertaining

Don't see it if Never seen full house or want high quality theatre

Raunchy, Banal, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if you're into lazy storytelling and terrible songs.

Don't see it if you care to not have hours of your life wasted.

78
Raunchy, Banal, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if You're a fan of the tv show. You will laugh in spite of yourself. Cast is very fun. Raunchy and offensive. Have a cocktail before the show.

Don't see it if you need some substance in your musicals. This is National Lampoon, not Sondheim.

85
Funny, Clever, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if You enjoyed full house and grew up in the 80's and 90's

Don't see it if It's campy and raunchy and enjoyable only if you know all the references.

Terrible yet amazing

See it if you are a Full House fan, or if you just want to see the weirdest thing ever.

Don't see it if you are looking for a show with any sort of substance.

69
Funny, Original, Edgy

See it if You're a big fan of 90s tv, and irreverent humor. But frankly, Perez Hilton is the worst Danny Tanner. The rest of the cast makes up for it.

Don't see it if "Cum Dumpster" was too much even for me.
