Movie Reviews

BRILLIANT, CLEAN and FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Gary L. Fox | Ok United States | 10/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

""CREATURE COMFORTS: 2nd SEASON - DVD"

REAL QUICK...The first season was adorable and whitty...the second season is every bit as good and better at times. The clay animation is fantastic and I can't help but wonder how brilliant the creaters are to think of a skits based on dialog from simple interviews. Very smart indeed.
I'm glad it includes the "Merry Christmas everybody" episode, that even makes it a better value.

Nice, clean and smart comedy that I highly recommend. In fact, I highly recommend both seasons...

BRILLIANT, FUNNY and GREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. 2 THUMBS UP...WAY UP!"
A different tenor than the first season

"As a fan of the Nick Park's style of claymation, I gave this product four stars. But the second season of Creature Comforts is not as universally accessible as the first. For starters, there is greater use of harder to understand British accents (Yorkshire, the urban youth talk, heavy Scottish, etc), which is fine for BBC afficiandos such as myself, but others, especially children, may find it a bit difficult to sort through the sounds to hear what the interviewees are saying. Keeping in mind that this series is made in the UK, the references to pop culture on that side of the ocean may be more obscure & the humor more elusive to neophytes.

The material as well seems a bit mature for younger audiences. Parents may wish to screen the episodes before watching them with their children. It's strictly PG+, not quite racy enough to be PG13, but a bit more advanced than some may feel comfortable with (think the juicier bits of "Were Rabbit").

But the quality of animation remains strong. The little details which we all love - the background characters moving in response to what the interviewees are saying - are up to the standard of excellence which we expect from an Ardman product. And the humor is still there, enjoyable for those who appreciate British style & wit.

As was previously noted, this set contains the separately sold Christmas special - which is a very fun episode, indeed, but not worth buying twice.

So, if you're a Nick Park fan, this is for you. But the newbie may be put off by difficult accents & unfamiliar subjects."

"I love this series! The animals are hilarious, and The Great British Public who provide the wry, grumpy, hilarious, and thoughtful voices for the animals are a real hit as always. The DVD contains all the episodes in the second season on one disc, plus the special Merry Christmas Everybody on a second disc.

This season was not quite as funny and charming as season one, but it still gets five stars because it is head and shoulders above most other DVD's. My boyfriend and I laughed all the way through, and both of us agreed that we would like to keep this in our permanent collection for rewatching (and rewatching soon!).

I would think this series is much more suitable for adults than children, just because you need to concentrate to understand the accents, and the humor is often more subtle or dry than children like. But I didn't hear anything that would really be unsafe for children's ears, I just don't think they'd like it as much as adults would."

"Another triumph from Nick Park & co. in collaboration with "the great British public." The interviews are terrific in themselves, but transformed by the wit and wizardry of the WALLACE & GROMIT team, they're priceless."
