Movie Reviews

I love Gallagher
SpiritChild | Amherst, MA United States | 12/31/2005

"I'm so glad that all of Gallaghers vintage stand ups are finally on DVD. The DVD transfer is very good. You can actually see sweat dripping down his head. The watermellon box is a bit goofy, but it's hardly worth bitching about. I got this set for less then 19 dollars on

god, what happened to good stand up comedy? The comedians today really suck. They all joke about the same thing; sex and how stupid white people are"

"It is great to finally get Gallgher on DVD. Only 2 problems I have noticed. Totally New is missing, and on a minor note Stuck in the 60's has some slight editing as during the song, the parts where he sings the chorus of a couple well known 60's songs, it has been taken out. Obvious crappy licensing issues that have caused some disasters to other DVD's. No other editing that I have noticed though.

But it still is a great collection with some concerts I have never seen before."
Five Stars For What Content There is
Green Star | Found in the Serenity of the Soul | 11/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, for starters, this is not all of Gallagher's comedy specials like I hoped it would be. It's missing "Totally New", "The Messiest of Gallagher", "I Can Make a Video, Too" and "Smashing Cheeseheads" (those are all the exemptions I know of). Secondly, it advertises "Mad as Hell" and "Two Real" as the opening two comedy specials. Sadly, this is all one show, just split up into two separate segments. "Two Real" is barely a half hour finisher to the original "Mad as Hell" special. Finally, the box these DVDs come in is an atrocity. It's made from the flimsiest of paper, no matter how gentle you are with it, it's going to get worn out very quickly. The DVDs themselves are not kept on solid backing, just more cardboard "cuteness". If "Anchor Bay" had wanted to impress buyers with the case, they should have made it a tin case like "Halloween 4". It may have jacked the cost up a bit, but Gallagher fans would have paid the extra bucks for the security of a good, solid, long-lasting case to house the discs in. Overall, the comedy specials this set contains are classics. But if you're looking for a complete retrospective of his career, or a lasting container to keep them in, you'll have to look elsewhere."
A rare find, poorly packaged

"It is hard to find much of Gallagher, a physical comedian that I enjoy watching.

This is an excellent collection of some of his work, including an early comedy-club appearance (you can tell he is unsure how his messier routines will go over with the crowd).

Unfortunately, this package is clumsy in its construction and fit. It will not fit in any normal DVD shelf or rack. Far better that it were in a simple fat DVD box. The outer cover and cap are simply very-thick paper or very-light cardboard. It is certainly not firm enough to keep shape expecpt for the most careful of handling.

Overall, an excellent purchase -- but do not have high hopes for the packaging."
