"David Foley directed this into a hilarious piece. I find this far more funny than watching a "tour" dvd. It is sad to see TV comedy re-enacted on stage for rabid geeks who can recite the bits in their sleep. Python at the Hollywood Bowl is a tribute to how far men are willing to denegrate themselves for a paycheck. I like this dvd because it is not at all like that. What Foley did was show us real people instead of trying to venerate or create some myth of "the kids". These real, funny, intelligent guys are together for better or for worse. The movie audience gets to peek back stage without it beening assumed we are watching to decide who is the cutest kid in the hall. Finishing it with his eye surgery is Dave's way of letting us know that none of the kids are too big to be small and petty. It is only fair since he made Scott Thompson look a right pratt through the whole thing."
Great For Hard-Core Fans at a Great Price!

"My girlfriend bought me Brain Candy and Tour of Duty for my birthday and I was overwhelmed with joy. I watched Brain Candy about 15 times, and Tour of Duty was outstanding, but I began to get interested in the behind the scenes portion of the tour, so you can imagine how interested i was in the Same Guys New Dresses DVD. I didn't have much money so i waited until Zellars had it on sale for 4.99 (GREAT BARGAIN!) and I rushed home to watch the Kids I love so dearly. I was NOT dissapointed at all. It's a great DVD for the hardcore fans of the series because it captures the side of the kids you just don't see on the show. Some people have said that the audio is terrible, but i didn't notice one thing wrong with it. It came in crystal clear for me, and besides, it's suppose to be a ROAD MOVIE, not a professionally crafted, fake... thing.As for the only drawback (which is hardly a drawback), there isn't enough of my favourite kid, Brucio."
