Raunchy, Insipid, Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing

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.

Disappointing, Edgy, Raunchy, Funny, 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.

Clever, Funny, Original, 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.

Excruciating, Disappointing, Raunchy

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.

Edgy, Raunchy, Funny, Cliched

See it if You're a huge fan of Full House and appreciate parodies.

Don't see it if You are not familiar with Full House or the actors from it enough to get all of the jokes.

Disappointing, Cliched, Funny

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).

Critic Reviews (6)

Theater In The Now
October 14th, 2015

"'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."

The Globe and Mail
August 30th, 2015
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."

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."

The Toronto Star
August 27th, 2015
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."

Digital Journal
August 27th, 2015
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' is."

Mooney On Theatre
September 1st, 2015
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."
