Modern Family "The Party" Review - AVClub

AVClub: There are some tropes in comedies that are just reliable, no matter how many times they’re used to get a laugh. Maybe it’s because they’re familiar, or maybe it’s because they’re inherently funny on some sort of subconscious level, but either way, there are certain comedic situations that manage to induce a laugh every time they’re used. Now, comedy is subjective, so your enjoyment of tonight’s episode of Modern Family may not be the same as mine, but I have to say that “The Party” largely works because of one reliable trope: adult characters being completely baked and paranoid.

The story is too old to be commented.
