Movie Reviews

Funny sketches... uninspired DVD.
M. J KILLEEN | Collingdale, PA USA | 09/28/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"You might think an Eric Idle compilation DVD from the Monty Python series would be great -- but there's something not quite right about this collection. For one thing, the sketches are clumsily edited, and taken out of their original context -- so the "How To Do It" sketch pans over to the beginning of a scene involving Michael Palin and Terry Jones as old women -- then abruptly cuts away from it.

Second, several of the skits are from the Hollywood Bowl film, which has a completely different look and feel from the TV series. The transition can be somewhat jarring.

Lastly, some of the skits don't feature Idle at all.

It's nice to see some original material from Idle at the beginning of the disc, but sadly -- it's not all that funny.

Most of the sketches that are on the DVD are very funny indeed, however. Too bad the DVD compilation is just a little uninspired."
