Movie Reviews

Duplicate material

"If you like British comedy, you'll love French and Saunders, but don't buy both collections unless you like duplicates!

The French and Saunders Collections I and II both contain the same four DVDs: "The Ingenue Years, "Living in a Material World, "Gentlemen Prefer French & Saunders," and "At the Movies."

With Collection II you get, in addition, "On the Rocks" and "Back with a Vengence."

Hope this saves you time and disappointment."

"French & Saunders, where Ab FAb came from, is the source of some of the funniest things I've ever seen. These dvds, while making reference to some British cultural references you won't understand, have some of the best parodies and sketch comedy ever. The Lord of the Rings parody is oscar-worthy itself. Dawn French is just amazingly funny all the time and makes me wonder why her or Ms. Saunders haven't made it here yet. Some times they are way off the wall and I think some skits are more for their own enjoyment than that of the audience, which can be a bit trying at times. Another classic however is the Rock Opera, with a great rendition of "I Should be so Lucky". These are not to be missed."

"French and Saunders are very funny, and for reasons I don't understand have not been imported sufficiently. Perhaps it's because Americans don't want women to be funny, or worse Americans think it is somehow unseemly for women to be funny. These women are funny and put all comers to shame. Dan Ackroid once said the "Women are not funny."--with the sort of end to the argument tone that intimadated all who might dissent. Dear Dan Ackroid these women put you to shame, you're funny but not consistent; they are consistent, in a way you should honor. I'll make this offer--I'll be happy to have Amazon send you all their work on my dime--perhaps then you can reconsider your position. If you still think women aren't funny, I'll eat the cost, if you have a revelation and experience appropriate shame regarding your stance, you can reimburse me. My proviso is this, don't let your testosterone get in the way of your professional judgement, as it has in the past."
