Movie Reviews

Before there was Dr. House....
Ralph and Martha Wright | Djibouti, Africa | 07/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There was Hugh Laurie and his multi-talented pal Stephen Fry, doing the best sketch comedy the world has ever known. Laurie gets to sing & play the piano, Stephen mixes drinks, and the two of them write really funny sketches. A particular fave is the series of episodes with the overtly polite spies, Control and Tony, but it's hard to choose favorites, 'cause there's so much to dig."

"It must be said that 'A Bit of Fry and Laurie' did not suffer any drop off in quality after it's first series. In fact the opposite is the case, as it appears to have gained comic momentum in the intervening time.

The clever, rapier wit that is employed by the duo is still present, however now it has been further honed in. Fry and Laurie have now identified their social targets and are inent on pursuing them with renewed vigour. On the chopping block are the governing Conservative party of the time, as well as much of the middle/upper classes, specifically the obnoxious, mobile phone toting yuppies of London's banking and financial sector.

However this is not to say that the series takes on too serious a tone or is any way "preachy". The pair still find time to have fun with more traditional (and hilarious) sketch show characters and to indulge their comical whims. If you were a fan of the first series then you definitely won't go wrong with this DVD as it is certainly worth a decent chunk of anyone's money."

"I'd never heard of Hugh Laurie until "House, MD", but after seeing a lot of ABOFAL clips on the net I decided to buy this DVD. It's so funny! Way better than Saturday Night Live, in my opinion.

The humor is sophisticated and not pandering to the lowest common denominator like so much so called comedy on TV these days. I've had to watch the DVD over and over just to "get" some of the jokes. I LOVE that. Not figuring out the punchline when the joke starts is awesome!

Stephen Fry is great too. I'd seen him in "V for Vendetta" but ABOFAL is the first comedic thing I've seen him do. He cracks me up.

Even if you've never heard of either of these two actors, you should get this DVD if you like comedy. It's one of those you can watch over and over and never get tired of it."
Hugh Laurie Is Funny

"For those people who only know Hugh Laurie as Dr. House, you will be deliighted to know he is truly a comic! He and Steven Frye will keep you in stitches for an hour in this series of comedy shows from the BBC. Inventive and wry, this is British humor (or humour) at its best."
