Movie Reviews

Hilarious Cult Comedy
Kitty Hooligan | Citizen of the World | 06/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Personal Services: I've seen this movie a dozen times at least, it has me giggling every time. Not only is it good cheeky English comedy it also makes an interesting statement on narrow social norms and hypocracy.

I've bought it for several friends who raise an eyebrow in my direction after watching it but they laugh despite themselves.

Other movie isn't very good. I'm baffled why they were put together."
Rare Underated Gem!

"Over Her Dead Body is a hilarious movie. (Nothing like the modern version.) This is my parent's favorite comedy. They tried looking for this on DVD and couldn't find it. (It's not even carried by the two major mail-in DVD companies) To have found this with another bonus comedy was a plus! This was an excellent Father's Day gift. Everyone is very pleased. Thanks!"
Elizabeth Perkins makes this watchable
L. Surowka | Bing, NY | 08/05/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film has a curio advantage going in. Apparently this was butchered by it's studio upon release then later reclaimed and restored by Perkins and director Maurice Phillips. This film has a decent cast but the plot has obviously been over used (Weekend at Bernie's anyone?). It offers a few good laughs here and there and Perkins as you've never seen her before, is simply triumphant; Sadly for her this film was overlooked and quickly gorgotten. She has never been better."
Little known but great movies

"Personal Services is one of those gems that is not known well in The States. It's a hilarious play on the quirky side of modern day politicians and is not only contemporary but insightful while still managing to stay clean. Though it takes place in Great Britain it's notions can be applied to any contemporary culture. I'm surprised that this film didn't get more exposure in The States. It's really funny and a lot of fun.."
