Movie Reviews

Oscar Wilde, you have to watch this.
Glenn Whelan | New York | 07/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just watched "Happy Birthday Oscar Wilde". Wow, full of amazing quotes and hilarious one liners from Wilde. There's a quote to suit every mood recited by a Hollywood star to suit every fancy. You get a great sense of his life through the quotes, from his sharp observations of society at the time to his persecution for being a gay man when it was illegal. One moment your laughing, next, you on the verge of tears. Well worth watching, if your not a fan of Oscar Wilde after this... there's no hope for you."

A Moving Tribute to a Brilliant Writer/Wit

Shivers went up my spine as celebrities kissed, bowed, and/or gave heartfelt happy birthday wishes to this Dublin wit. It is easily seen that each line is read with tone and emotion of true effort, evincing all participants definitely wanted to be a part of this and were in some way affected by his genius, making the DVD even more special. Incredibly wonderful DVD."

"If you are a fan of Oscar Wilde you will love this DVD. Some of the biggest stars of stage, screen and music are part of this celebration of what would have been Oscar's 150th birthday.
I found it very entertaining and educational. Really fun watching and listening to Martin Sheen, Bono, Lily Tomlin etc enjoying the wit of this great writer."
