Entertainment Weekly Gives “Liberal Arts” an A- Review

Sure, it may not be quite as prestigious as NPR or The New York Times, but Entertainment Weekly is still a major publication, and seemingly one of the first to review Liberal Arts positively. EW calls it “the wittiest, most perceptive campus comedy in years,” and takes a more positive view of Radnor’s acting. Instead of being “smug [and] obsequious,” as the Times called him, EW‘s Owen Gleiberman sees him more as “Paul Rudd’s puppyish cousin.” No mention of Kenyon in this review, but the campus setting is again referred to as “leafy,” which is the best thing the Times bothered to say about us, but this time also adding “idyllic.”
