Movie Reviews

The raunchiest set of them all
Mark James Drummond | 06/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The 1983 episodes on this set are easily the dirtiest of the whole series, due almost entirely to "Mahala"(couldn't get her actual name from the credits, but she's the one who closely resembles porn actress Tracey Adams). I suspect she was an actual exotic dancer as she actually whips out the twins and the booty, something the other Hill's Angels didn't do much. If you don't remember that from the original US syndication, that's because the eps got heavily censored(my local affiliate occasionally forgot to do that...). These are also the last shows to feature Jackie Wright as a regular. Benny had no head to smack afterwards. Never was the same after that..."

"How can any fan of Benny Hill not enjoy a compilation of his work? I have spent hours laughing at the exploits that I had only previously seen on television."
Good 80's Tv Classic Show
David FERNANDEZ SABIO | Torrejón de Ardoz, Madrid Spain | 11/18/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember the spoof The B-Team in the reruns of The Benny Hill Show in cable Tv.Other eps that also are good are Super Teech,Fingers McNee Bank Robber.But most important are the presence of the Hills Angels specially Alison Bell and Louise English,the end of show chases the classic tune,the mute sketches.Hope last set won't be long to release."
Excellent Slapstick
Danno | NY, NY | 03/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 3-DVD set collects nine episodes taken from the later years of the Benny Hill show. Love him or hate him, Benny Hill was an exceptionally gifted comedian specializing in both imaginative slapstick and music hall-style patter songs. What's most amazing to me is how, relatively late in his career, he was still finding new twists in genres that one would have thought were exhausted years ago. While it's true that the quality during these years was often hit-or-miss, the hits are as good as anything Benny Hill ever participated in.

The standouts include an extended satire of the then-current American TV series "The A-Team," a sendup of the opera "Carmen," and a surreal striptease by a circus clown. These are among the best comedy sketches ever filmed. As for the Hills Angels, in addition to the usual eye candy Sue Upton gets to play a few characters and Louise English gets to sing a few show-stoppers in the most unexpected of places. (Did Louise ever record an LP, I wonder???)Despite the box illustration, there aren't many sketches with Benny Hill's alias Fred Scuttle sad to say.

I enjoyed the box set over a 3 week-period and would recommend it to anyone who likes either slapstck or sketch comedy. There aren't many extras (just an annoying trivia game, a skimpy booklet, and a serious of scattershot interviews with Hills Angels - except Louise oddly enough) so I suggest looking for this one below the list price. You will not be disappointed."
