Movie Reviews

The makings of a classic...
Robert S. Riemensnyder | Wilkes-Barre, PA | 10/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've always enjoyed Allo Allo. From Day One, it's been the perfect blend of witty one-liners, slapstick, intrigue and bawdy humor. However, I feel the series's momentum really picked up with this, the fourth season of the show.

I was sad to see the characters of Maria and Hans to leave the show, but their departure made room for two things that made the series so much funnier - the introduction of Mimi and more emphasis on Gruber.

From top to bottom, this season is hilarious. The episode where Rene and Edith interview prospective replacements for Maria is a personal favorite of mine. Highly recommended to fans of British comedy or any comedy for that matter. Timelessly funny."

"Even when the Brits are doing the silliest stuff, they WORK at it. The pure looniness of this series is enough to recommend it, but --

Every medal and line of the German uniforms is correct. Who would care? But if somebody's been on the Russian front, he's got the medals for it.

The cars are right, the clothes are right. Even the farm machinery is right, and obviously borrowed from loving owners. This gloriously goofball series is as exacting and accurate as a Masterpiece Theater presentation, at least in the prop department.

But wait -- is that the only work they've done?

The nutty handling of the accents is based on actual idiosyncracies of the various languages.

Even Leutnant Grueber, when trilling "Attention!" does it in the antique high-pitched tone of a Berlin sergeant. How esoteric can you get?

The relationships of the characters -- from the desperate measures plain people have to go through to survive an occupation, to the sexual preferances in a murderous regime -- skate just this side of the horrific, and still manage to make us gasp with laughter, while accurately portraying the weirdness that was World War Two. It's been said that the best comedy is based in suffering. If that's the case, this series is working the formula like a caisson horse.

The research on this series is just mind-boggling. It makes it just that much more fun for a student of the period.

When the series needed to replace the actor who played Herr Flick, it didn't find someone who looked like him. It found someone who acted and sounded like him, and then claimed he'd had plastic surgery. Now that's chutzpah (pardon the reference).

It reminds us once again, as a character on The Jeffersons once said about a British neighbor:

"There's a whole ISLAND like him over there."

'Allo, 'allo is another reason we should be glad."
Complete Series/Seasons 1-9 to be made available?
R.B. | USA | 02/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Series/Seasons 1-4 have been available on DVD [in PAL format] in the UK and Australia for some time. There is a great deal of hope among the growing numbers of fans that the remainder of the program [series/seasons 5-9] will also be made available. The availability of Series/Season Five DVD should tip us off if plans to release the remainder of Allo, Allo are in the works.

I would venture to guess, if you like Hogan's Heroes, you may take a liking to Allo, Allo as well. I did!

Give it a shot!"
An Outstanding British Humor!!!

"Finally, the long-awaited comedy series is here... volume after volume. The series is a great pleasure to watch, with lots of laughter, "kinky humor", lots of slap-stick lines and physical comedy. Super quality television!!! a must-own DVD collection."
