Movie Reviews

Without Pauline Collins pass on Wodehouse Playhouse
clydehill | Bellevue, WA United States | 03/25/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I would not have bought this DVD if I had known that it was the sans Collins version. First I am a great fan of Wodehouse done well. The PBS Jeeves and Wooster was beautifully done. Playhouse 1 and 2 was in the main beautifully done. Just 2 or 3 weak stories. The Wodehouse series, when played by regular actors, has in essence, some rather dumb scenes and stupid stories. It is the talent of Collins and Alderton that brings a new dimension and makes it so enjoyable. Collins sense of the ridiculous, is superb and quite unique. She has some of the most terrible lines and somehow makes them unforgettable. She:"Pah!", He:"Did you say 'Pah'?", She: "Yes I said Pah. Pah! Pah! Pah!" What can any other actress do with lines like that. Alderton is excellent but Wodehouse is possible without Alderton. Without Collins these stories are not worth much."

"Sure, I love Pauline Collins too, but don't let the switch put you off this DVD set. The stories are every bit as funny as the first two volumes and in some respects better for having chosen some of the better P.G. Wodehouse stories. John Alderton is still worth the price of admission all by himself, but if you'll take my advice and come into the thing with an open mind, you might like the new girl very well as well."
