Movie Reviews

British sketch comedy at its finest
iamdaffodils | Louisiana | 12/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you only know Hugh Laurie because of House, M.D. , then you have to check out A Bit of Fry and Laurie to see why he's so adept at the comic elements he brings to House. Laurie and his friend and comedy partner Stephen Fry are nothing short of amazing, playing dozens of different characters in probably the best British sketch comedy series ever. They play so well off of each other with pitch perfect comedic timing, and the great respect and affection they have for each other comes across in every sketch - even when Stephen is slapping and beating Hugh silly! I highly recommend these DVD's and anxiously await the release of Seasons 3 and 4 on DVD."
Missing & incorrect extras?

"I bought Seasons 1 and 2 a couple of weeks ago and while I have enjoyed the episodes, I am a little confused about the extras. According to Amazon.com and the back of the DVD covers:

S1 is supposed to include the "1987 Christmas Special". My copy only contains the 6 S1 episodes.

S2 is supposed to include "Footlights: 100 years of comedy - 56 minutes of documentary featuring early Fry & Laurie material" . My copy contains a 46 minute show called the "Cambridge Footlights" (I think), which is a show of earlier material of Fry & Laurie's, and while entertaining, it definitely not a documentary.

Has anyone else found the same problem with their copies?

13 Sept - update - I have since heard from someone in the UK that the Christmas Special is actually the first episode of the Season 1 set. Apparently it was going to be a one off show, but turned out so popular, that they added an extra 5 shows and made it into a complete season. I think it is just a case of the DVDs not being labelled very clearly for us non-UK fans :-)."
What a terrific show!

"I've been a big Hugh Laurie fan for years. (Quite fond of Stephen Fry as well, but Hugh is my favorite.) I have the "Best Of" on VHS from years ago and have been dying for the show to be put on DVD.

Some of the humor is a bit over the top, and some is the dry, understated wit that the Brits are known for. All in all, I'd highly recommend this to any fan of British comedy!"
Finally!

"There's a good chance that anyone reading this review is already a fan of A Bit of Fry and Laurie, but if you haven't seen the show I would highly recommend that you give it a try. I recorded the show onto VHS when it played on my local PBS station years and years ago. I show my friends this amazingly funny show every chance I get and it is received very well. Just a warning...if you don't like British comedy, you may not like this. The comedy is much more intelligent and subtle than most American comedies and a lot of people can't get into that. But for you fans of British Comedy (you know who you are) it doesn't get much better than A Bit of Fry and Laurie."
