Movie Reviews

Hardly "Vicious"--A Winning Performance By The Likable Dane
K. Harris | Las Vegas, NV | 10/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There's probably not a lot I can say about "Vicious Circle," Dane Cook's Boston performance in the round filmed for HBO. Whether or not you enjoy a one-man comedy concert largely depends on how much you enjoy the particular comedian. Dane Cook has obviously become huge in the last few years, and this concert showcase is very likely to please his fans.

Dane Cook is not the most cutting-edge comic, his material will never be construed as dark or dangerous. But what he has going for him is a real likability factor. He is a gifted storyteller assuming different voices and really throwing his whole body into the routine. In a goofy, non-threatening way--he's the guy you want to be your best friend, the class clown and the genial fratboy all rolled up into one.

The success of his comedy lies in the fact that he spins instantly recognizable scenarios. It is very easy to identify with him as a person, and it's easy to relate to his jokes. There is just something universal and true in most of his performance, so you can appreciate it and see yourself in his observations. Very watchable and entertaining, I enjoyed this concert. I think Dane is a great talent and my hope is for him to someday parlay his gift into making movies more worthy of his appeal (yes, I'm talking "Employee of the Month")! KGHarris, 10/06."
Dane Cook makes comedy worth watching again
C. Yang | boston, ma | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this show live when it was taped in Boston, and I can honestly say that Dane Cook never ceases to amaze me. It's easy to categorize his act as simply catering towards obnoxious frat boys, but Dane Cook has brought the life back to comedy with his unique approach and brilliant use of words. Not to mention that his delivery is always spot on. I had grown tired of the typical simplistic humor of the sort that has become the norm on SNL and other "comedy" shows. But Dane Cook's performances are refreshing to watch because he makes the act what it is; only he could perform his act and pull it off without looking like he's trying too hard. He is simply an amazing comedian and there is a reason why he was named one of Time's Top 100 Most Influential People and also one of Forbes' Top 100 Celebrities. This DVD is definitely worth the buy. He uses his classic material from previously released CD's (which never loses its hilariousness), but he also busts out a lot of new stuff that is just as good, if not better. So buy the DVD, see it in theaters on 11/27/06 if you can, and prepare yourself for non-stop laughs. Support the guy because he's awesome and he adores his fans! SUFI!!!"
You have to get this.

"I was at Dane's show and I suggest everyone should get this DVD. The 90 minute HBO special was hilarious, but you HAVE to watch the extended concert (the one I was at) because most of the funniest jokes of the night weren't even put in the 90 minute show. For example, the pumpkin bomb skit. So if you are a serious Dane fan, you have to get this, it's worth it."
This Is a Dane Cook Preformance to Remember
Corey J. Martin | Barrington, RI | 12/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was lucky enough to actually be a member in the audience during the Vicious Circle show at the Garden. It was a perfect combination of him retelling his older jokes with certain new twists and changing things around, as well as some great new material. I don't know what these other people have been talking about, because this show is truly a show to remember. I don't think I have ever laughed that hard before, and after watching the show on HBO, it all came back. If you like Dane Cook, then this is perfect for you, because it is Dane, and there is no one else out there like him."
