Movie Reviews

You Gotta Love Her!!
William G. Ratcliffe | Lawrenceville, New Jersey United States | 06/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since Phyllis was rather popular when i was younger (late 60's), I cannot imagine any female comic not saying 'thank you' to Phyllis for opening doors. Here is a delightful dvd that includes a few of her tv specials. I don't remember these when they were first shown on tv, I guess I was in bed early or something.
Her outrageous outfits, perfect timing, clean jokes, and special guests makes this dvd a good evening for those who would like to experience her wit, and happy go lucky attitude.
Classic Phyllis in all her glory

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really fun DVD for Phyllis Diller fans, with many of her best comedy clips from "The Hollywood Palace" and "The Beautiful Phyllis Diller" TV shows heavily featured. From Fang's mother, make-up and housekeeping tips, "The Phyllis Diller Charm & Finishing School", and a slew of celebrity guest-stars, this DVD takes you on an hilarious trip back in time to Phyllis Diller's heydey as the reigning comedy queen of television.

Highlights: Don Rickles, Terry-Thomas and Diller in the "hijacked aeroplane" skit; Diller in beach gear singing "Music to Watch Girls By" with Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello and Phil Harris; and the King Sisters joining Diller in fright wigs and blue chiffon for graduation day at "Phyllis Diller's Charm & Finishing School".

The signature stand-up comedy monologues with Diller have lost some of their bite with the passing years; yet Diller's keen sense of oddball humour and self-deprecating wit, in itself, remains as timeless as ever. A great addition to your collection of classic TV shows."
