Movie Reviews

Much better than the first DVD!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really liked the first DVD, but it has some episodes that I like better than others. When I bought Volume 2, I thought that these might be shows that were not funny enough to make it to Volume 1. I was wrong - this DVD is MUCH funnier! I love every episode - first rate Dame Edna."
A total riot!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Being from Melbourne like Dame Edna I have known her for as long as I can remember. And she had a winner with this game show as far as laughs are concerned. Well, the contestants thought it was a game show about houses, but it turned out to be about one contestant's house in particular. The poor lady of the house is subjected to a live TV camera going into the house when she is sitting in the studio. And that is when the shocks and embarrassment begin. Dame Edna stops at nothing, including opening any drawer and cupboard she wants to see what's inside. I won't tell you the things she uncovers and the howls of laughter from the audience that go with it.
The first DVD is very, very good but the second series has a few more surprises. At one time on the 2nd series Dame Edna was given a response that was so stupid (there is no other word for it) that even she, with all her composure and great performing abilities, was not able to keep control and broke up laughing.
If you can get both DVD's you will thank yourself. If not, I suggest this one (the second series) and you will find yourself inviting many friends over who must see it.
For your information, 6 shows on the DVD and countless laughs!"
Possums, this dvd is Dame good!!

"I recently bought a copy of this dvd and I'm so glad I did. I've been a fan of Dame Edna's for quite some time and have enjoyed her on TV (on Fox's "Ally McBeal" and her short lived show in the late 90s) and on the printed page (her autobiograpy is a hoot!). This dvd doesn't disappoint a true Dame Edna fan. This hilarious British game show puts the self appointed "spin doctor to the Queen of England" in her best element. Taking stunned housewives on a unexpected tour of their home while giving hilarious observations in her usual sharp tongue, this Dame delivers true comedy. Her "interesting" choices in fashion and her wonderful facial expressions only add to the fun. I'm definitely gonna get the 1st one too. If its half as funny as this one, it'll be worth the price."
NW #2 is better than the first, Possums!!

""Say your prayers, cause we're going up your stairs!"I'm not sure if this is an original concept, but it is a SCREAM nonetheless. Barry Humphries, Dame Edna, does a grand job with costume, wit, audience interaction, humor and even wrote the theme song. His facial expressions and comedic timing are unmatched!He takes unsuspecting ladies from the audience, who think they are going to play a quiz show about houses, and actually takes the viewers on a LIVE TOUR of the interior of their homes. It's a riot!! The show gets permission from the "sneaky" husband and they film while the wife is away. All the dirty laundry, and YES, there is some of that, is aired!! It's obvious they learned a LOT from the first season when they shot the second season. There are more hijinks, special moments and pranks played on the unsuspecting contestant than just going through their home. My friends and I were sick from laughing so hard!Bottom line: $23.00 is a bit expensive for a DVD, but the comedic SHOCK value is priceless....and with six episodes for DVD, think of it as a little under four bucks a show...a good value for all the laughs!"
