Oh Grow Up Review

Philadelphia Daily News, September 22, 1999

Hail to the chief

This series on presidency could be a winner

Also tonight...

Remember way back in the '80s, when some people thought those characters on "thirtysomething" were whiners?

At least they were trying to be grown-ups.

The premise of ABC's Oh Grow Up, a sitcom about three guys sharing a house that premieres tonight, is the same as that of a number of other new shows, all of which argue that people in their late 20s and 30s are caught in an extended adolescence. In this case, one of the trio has just left his wife because he's gay, another has quit his job to become an artist, and a third, a longtime womanizer, discovers he has a daughter who's only a little bit younger than the women he usually dates.

Oh, grow up.

-- John Carman
