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."
Fantastic! The entire collection

"Ironically, this collection was available in North America before it was the in UK.

French and Saunders (F&S) are one of Britain's best comedy teams.

They've worked together since the 1980s and are each known for singular success in a BBC comedy (French - The Vicar of Dibley; Saunders - Absolutely Fabulous.)

The DVDs are "best of" selections from each series (what we in the US call a season) of shows. Each DVD contains special programming (holiday specials, etc.) The extra specials are well worth the price of the set.

F&S are best known for their movie parodies, "white room" sketches, imitations of well known celebrities, and music video parodies.
Absolute Halarity!

"French & Saunders are a brilliant comic duo. This set is all the best of their wit, poking fun where it's needed most and total nuttiness. Gotta love those British gals and their side splitting antics. I don't enjoy viewing many things more than once, but this program is repeatedly funny (which is why I purchased it in the first place). I continue to catch things I hadn't the first time around and always end the DVD with a sore belly (from cracking up that is, not gorging myself with snacks). What was that sound?.....oh, it was just my busting gut."

"I loved this!! It is great to be able to see a collection of French and Saunders finest work in Australia, where we often miss out on a lot of overseas things. Particularly brilliant are the Titanic and Lord of the Rings spoofs, with appearances from my favourite characters, the prop designers!! Also includes a lot of old favourites like Jackie and Leanne and plenty from the 'extras' ladies!! Overall I loved it and would recommend it to any fan who wants a laugh."
