Review: Super Fun Night premiered Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013 on ABC stars Rebel Wilson. You know her from Bridesmaids as Kristin Wiig’s roommate. She was also in Bachelorette (an underrated movie, if you ask me…i thought it was funnier than Bridesmaids) and Pitch Perfect. She’s fat and she’s a blonde and she’s awesome. Let’s talk about the show!
The opening scene is great; We’re introduced to Fat Amy, I mean, Kimmie Boubier. The scene starts with Kimmie recording her first video blog, which is based on her diary Ha Ha!
We get hilarious flashbacks of Kimmie’s youth. VERY funny and I hope they keep this up because I like young Kimmie. She’s unfortunate. It’s OK tho, because today, Kimmie is really happy, things are going good, she’s got a promotion, a little crush, she’s very silly and most times borderline embarrassing – but she always plays it cool! I really like Kimmie’s personality, i think we may share similar characteristics!
It’s nice to see a show with some new faces – Kimmie’s got two best friends [with whom she is going on the super fun night out with.] Let me describe them to you. You got Marika – she’s gotta be Marla’s daughter (from A League of Their Own “I’m singin’ to Nelson!”). She seems brutally honest in the ways of Melissa McCarthy (see Bridesmaids, Identity Thief, and The Heat). She sounds a lot like Emma Stone and can carry that sassy, intellectual attitude aswell. She’s a hard ass, I like her, I’d be friends with her. Then we got Helen-Alice, a nice, smart, innocent asian. She’s a dork. She wears glasses and has a ponytail!
The show is about the winners and the losers and how those losers are gonna try to be winners! The characters themselves are funny, and the writing holds some very memorable one-liners! There seemed to be some recycled jokes, but whatever. That just means the writers know what’s funny. I will never get enough fat jokes, though, so keep those coming!! Seconds, please! I’m confident this show will find itself a unique style of its own – and it doesn’t have very far to go.
The show ain’t over till the fat lady sings….and this episode, she’s singin’ her heart out! I am very excited to tune in to future episodes. I’m very relieved to have this show keep me interested, along with many other new comedies [that premiered this Fall]. There’s hope for primetime tv again!
• The theme song is really fun PLUS it’s good and SHORT. Take the hint, other shows with ridiculously long theme songs!! I WANNA WATCH THE SHOW!
• Sometimes I think Rebel Wilson is like the female Jonah Hill…
• I Really like the cheesy jokes, more please!
