Movie Reviews

Classic F&S
Connie C | Virginia | 12/02/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those who have seen the 1990 French & Saunders Live Show, the New Show from 2000 is considerably more satisfying. Their success during the '90s is very evident in this show - they're at the top of their game and their confidence leaps off the stage with crisp comic timing and more humorous, often self-effacing bits. This show has just enough of the classic characters from their TV Series, funny references to their solo ventures, and spectacular effects with a massive rear-screen projection (how does Jennifer walk up that wall - backwards?). It's not often that I laugh out loud when watching television, but I kept finding myself giggling until my cat started staring at me wondering what was wrong. I'm not sure that it deserves a 5-star rating of perfection, but it's better that 4 stars, and 4 1/2 stars was not an option. F&S and AbFab fans definitely need to add this to their collections."
Good F&S - but the first live show is worth finding...

"Longtime F&S fan (an English woman introduced me to their work in 1992) and flew to London in early 2001 to see this show live at the Hammersmith Odeon. Some hilarious sketches but a Jennifer and Dawn perhaps a little too much of "stars" at this stage in their careers, and lacking the originality (and downright silliness, which I love!) of their earlier work.

Certainly a must-have for an F&S follower, but unlike the other reviewer, I'm a bigger fan of the 1990 live show. That show featured great sketches from the 3rd series (one of their best) and the inimitable Simon Brint and Rowland Rivron as Raw Sex. Couldn't ask for more, frankly!!"
Funny show, bad transfer

"While this is an NTSC DVD, it obviously originated from a PAL source. Unfortunately, the PAL->NTSC conversion was done terrible; about as ugly as a regular DVD player can do a conversion it's self when you play a PAL DVD in an NTSC machine. You will notice this as a "jittering" in the picture around any sharp detail when things aren't moving (you can see it quite easily at the top or bottom of the letterbox.) It's kind of a shame.

Aside from this technical annoyance, the show it's self is pretty funny.. any F&S fan should check it out. I echo most of the other revewier's comments."
French & Saunders 2000 Live Show is Wonderful!

"This show is a great for any fan of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, together or apart. They are quite a team that obviously are great together and creative in what they attempt. All the same old F&S antics are there with Dawn acting crazy with her big smile, and Jennifer has some amazing vocal cords. When you watch this show you will never hear the same old version of "Downtown" in your head ever again!
