    Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.

    It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.

    A story that's too fascinating to pass by...

    Ok... Let's be honest. It cannot be the best movie but is quite enjoyable. The movie has the potential to develop a great plot for future movies

    This truly is the bottom of the barrel as far as sitcoms go. What mindless drivel. So unoriginal, boring, and predictable. It's the same storyline every single episode. Ray the wimpy dopey husband lets his wife walk all over him while Ray's parents barge in (ever heard of locking the door?) and the mother in law criticizes Debra's cooking or gives a backhanded compliment about the house being clean. Meanwhile, the father sits on the chair in front of the TV with his pants unzipped bashing Ray's sons and his own sons Ray and Robert for having homosexual tendencies. Then the mopey giant cop brother Robert comes over and complains about how everyone prefers his brother Raymond. My parents used to watch this on TV Land every night and thank god they stopped. Even King of the Queens which is a very mediocre run of the mill sitcom is comedic gold compared to this steaming pile of horse crap. This has to be the most overrated sitcom of all time along with Friends, Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother. I'll stick to watching sitcoms like Seinfeld, the Office, and Family Guy.It truly is a wonder to me how this garbage managed to stay on air for 9 years and what's even more mind boggling is how many people actually thought this was funny enough to keep tuning in for 9 years. But then again Americans were stupid enough to elect Reagan, Bush, and Trump president so who am I kidding? Probably the most baffling, disturbing, and annoying part of this show is the cliche dumb doormat husband and the genius housewife who is never satisfied. You sit at home all day while your husband goes to work and makes good money so you have no room to complain. I cannot fathom how she can be so negative all the time.Anyway, if you have half a brain avoid this show at all costs. But if you hate your own life or like femdom then this is the show for you.

    This is the best American comedy series ever made. I love the deadpan and sarcastic tone of the scripts. The characters are brilliantly acted and are genuinely believable. The best comedy takes everyday situations and family relationships and exploits them, which ELR does so expertly well. You can tell that the first series doesn't quite reach the heights that the following series' do but it's a new comedy finding its feet. Whoever found the cast of actors did an amazing job because it is too difficult to imagine anyone else acting any of the parts. My favourite character is Robert the New York cop brilliantly played by Brad Garret, but I love all of the characters. ELR is on the same level as Porridge, Rising Damp and Fawlty Towers. Anyone who doesn't find this comedy funny needs help....from Dr Greenberg!!

    I love comedies that are consistently funny, many times over, where the laughs don't all necessarily come from script, but from situation and timing. Other examples are The Cosby Show, Family Ties, and The King Of Queens. Now Ray Romano may, not be the best actor in the world, but he's acting comedic timing, in playing this kind of layabout hunky sports columnist writer, Ray, ha ha, is dynamite. His folks are played by two superb actors, who gave such great performances, both who've sadly passed away, one most recently (another sad day in Hollywood). I love household comedies, and this is just another household, I'd loved to be part of. ELR has a high ratio laughs level, and for people to say this is crap, honestly, this has left me dumbstruck. Ray's older, less fortunate, and big cop brother, Robert (Brad Garrett) too has wonderful comic timing, with great character to boot. He never slips up, where in stand up, he's bloody fun. I know too, the kids go very neglected here, with not much time on the acting field, but this is the right decision, on part of the writers, as this would take away, the hours of laughs, or magic within the other characters. ELR is one of the best comedies of the last twenty years, where disregard, totally the bad and unfair criticisms. Wonderful frickin' show, and honestly, how could you hate Raymond?

    SHOUT LOUDER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE AND IT BECOMES HUMOR ? SHOUT LOUDER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE AND IT BECOMES HUMOR ? SHOUT LOUDER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE AND IT BECOMES HUMOR ?Everybody Loves Raymond is probably placed 1st on my "Worst Comedy List". Having to watch Everybody Loves Raymond is painful for me having to sit through endless canned laughter. I have not laughed once in the amount of times I've watched this show, really, I haven't, it's that bad. I don't know about anyone else, but i don't find the comedy style of Ray Romano funny. The rest of the characters are complete airheads. When this show was about to end, I loved seeing the TV Guide magazine that said "goodbye Ray" on it. It's hard to believe it lasted as long as it did. This show was too boring and the humor was too dry. I found the show "Everybody Hates Chris" a thousand times more entertaining than this show.
