Movie Reviews

Still very funny.
British Commentator | London, United Kingdom | 11/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After three UK series of this character comedy sketch show, plus a two part "overseas" special, this is the first series of the show set in the USA.

It is a mix of established characters, Americanised versions of UK characters, and entirely new characters. It continues to be very funny and very rude!

New hits are an ex astronaut living on his faded reputation, a foul mouthed schoolgirl and two over macho bodybuilders."
Ready for a good laugh.

"Insert this DVD into the player and sit back for a good evening of entertainment. Always funny, occasionally rude, crude and uncouth these characters are belly laughs and hysterical giggles. Don't miss this one but put the kids to bed first."
Little Britain, Big Laughs!!

"Little Britain USA is a different kind of program from the usual Little Britain. When I was first introduced to the show, I was a little confused--"it seems like it is just the same two guys doing the same bunch of characters and...oh, I see now! Different skits and stories!" Once I was into the second episode of Little Britain's Season (series) One and began to 'get it' finally, I went back, watched episode one and then was hooked thereafter. The characters are always hilarious, and David Walliams and Matt Lucas never cease to amaze me with their creations, writing, and comedic talents. All that to say: Be sure to introduce yourself to the actual British version as well.

Now, in Little Britain USA there was one thing in the commentary that was said that I acknowledged watching the series: They wrote the series and re-wrote some of the characters to make it more "fitting" for a USA audience. That was not necessary at all. I loved the new "American" characters they've created, but was ever so happy to see Lou and Andy, Sebastian, Vickie Pollard, and Daffyd Thomas. My suggestion in the future is to write the show their way and NOT try to Americanize it. Lucas and Walliams are geniuses and need to just stick with doing it their way.

There are a few running storylines throughout the 6 episodes (I assume the series was cut short to 6 episodes as in Season Two the costumes took up a lot of budget). We're reintroduced to "Bitty" as a family with an overprotected infantile son visit their American Cousins, two HILL-arious bank robbers, and even funnier body builders. I love grandma and the grandson on the front porch having discussions. There are one-off jokes like the cop and his gun collection and hunters who go after "big" game.

Still, for me I was most attentive to see some of the original characters from the original series (mentioned above) who I love. They're such well rounded characters with great personalities and are very, very funny.

If you can, be sure to watch Little Britain Series' 1 - 3, Little Britain Abroad, and Little Britain Live. I love all those shows a LOT.

Especially Lou and Andy.
