      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Drop Dead Diva's lightweight and somewhat cliche' fare is made vastly more palatable by the breakout performance of its lead, Brooke Elliott.

      Previous Mandy Van Deven Bitch Media Despite its heavy-handedness in pushing a feel good vibe... DDD's ultimate message is worthwhile. Dec 22, 2020 Full Review Raju Mudhar Toronto Star On the strength of the pilot, it's definitely worth watching. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review June Thomas Slate Of course, it wouldn't have been quite so amusing if the show's big issue-the way that big women are desexualized, taken for granted, and generally treated shoddily-were mishandled. But so far, at least, it hasn't been. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Rachel Wagner Hallmarkies Podcast Brilliantly cast with a completely unique character in Jane Bingum and a luminous performance by Brooke Elliott. Jan 17, 2023 Full Review Dodai Stewart The Muse/Jezebel While some of it was enjoyable, most of it made me roll my eyes and/or cringe. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Sharon Lougher This Legally Blonde/Freaky Friday concoction is thoroughly daft but it's also pleasingly bright and breezy, and serves as a great introduction to Brooke Elliott, who is likeable and effective in the double-sided lead role.

      Previous tenaya c This show is a light, fun story with delightful characters that also tackles some very important issues about body image, friendship, spirituality and intelligence! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched the first one and got addicted!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the best show. It is very unique in its concept. Great acting. Overall A++ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this show. I don't care what anyone else says, this show is perfect. I felt so many emotions while watching this show. It is funny, it makes me weep like a little girl, it shocks me, it teaches me new things, and it just makes me happy. The first episode confused me. I didn't read the synopsis of the show, and I didn't have any friends tell me about. I saw it on Netflix one day and decided to press play. I loved Deb, and thought she was fun. I saw Jane for the first time and I felt sorry for her. When Deb woke up as Jane, I felt a bit disappointed. I thought she would somehow get her body back. When I realized that wasn't going to happen, I thought to myself "Well, this show is dumb..." As I watched and understood what was happening, I started crying. It was kind of awesome!
