Netflix Viewers Are Calling Melissa McCarthy's God's Favourite Idiot 'Perfection'

A new Melissa McCarthy comedy series has dropped on Netflix and users are already returning from their binge-viewings with rave reviews.

God's Favourite Idiot is an eight part series that stars Melissa as Amily Luck, a quirky co-worker of mid-level tech support employee Clark Thompson, played by Melissa's husband Ben Falcone.

After finding love with Amily, things get unexpectedly complicated for Clark when he unwittingly becomes a messenger of God. As you do.



After tearing through all eight episodes of the comedy series, fans have taken to Twitter in praise of Melissa McCarthy's sensational performance, recommending it as a must-watch.

"This show is as quirky as Melissa McCarthy’s wardrobe," commented one fan, pointing to Melissa's character's unique outfits in the show. "Fun and lighthearted, it’s a great summer series."

A second told followers: "Really loving #godsfavoriteidiot on Netflix so far. I do love me some @melissamccarthy!!"


"Melissa McCarthy is pure comedy it’s crazy how naturally funny she is," tweeted a third.

And a fourth commented: "Per usual Melissa McCarthy is comedic perfection but the actor playing Tom is killing it!! Absolutely hilarious & matches her comedic timing perfectly!! #GodsFavoriteIdiot."


Other fans were more awe-struck by the team effort between McCarthy and her co-star/husband Ben Falcone.

The couple have worked together on a wide range of projects across their acting and directing careers including Tammy (2014), The Boss (2016), Thunder Force (2021), The Heat (2013), Bridesmaids (2011) and The Happytime Murders (2018) to name but a few.

A second agreed: "I love Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone together! Their chemistry >>> #GodsFavoriteIdiot yes, I know they’ve been together for decades but them in this show is giving me all the feels."


"Just finished #GodsFavoriteIdiot and I need more - Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are pure magic" wrote a third. "Only they can give me the emotions I have rn and they are all good. amazing work ,once again!!!"

And a fourth commented: "I did not realize how much I was looking forward to Melissa & Ben as lead love interests on TV!"
