5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Comedy - A Must Have! 16 Aug 2011
By Lauren
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My brother introduced me to the Angry Boys series after watching Summer Heights High. At first it was a slow start getting to know all of the characters, but as the story develops you end up forgetting that this diverse group of people are all played by one man. It is extremely well written and produced, and the songs are amazing in their own right. I have nothing but praise for Chris Lilley and found myself literally crying with laughter every episode.

Anyone who loves comedy (and is not easily offended..!) will love this series. I can't wait to see what he has planned next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 23 Aug 2011
By Hannah
Format:DVD
As a fan of We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High, I was really looking forward to Angry Boys and thankfully it didn't disappoint. If you're easily offended by bad language, definitely don't buy it! Otherwise, you can't go wrong. The characters are diverse, from overbearing Japanese mother Jen to Gran the prison guard. Chris Lilley also has the unique ability to make you laugh and cry all in the same episode. I'd highly recommend all of his programs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Angry Boys.....pure genius 15 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
Absoliute brilliance from Chris lilley - I didnt want this 12 part series to end- great characters with their own unique style and wit and of varying intelligence- which results in great comedy- very dry and some people might not get it- but poor them- lets hope for more Angry Boys, Nathan and Daniel and S.mouse have so much to offer ,as does Gran , not forgetting the Fat Boys Surf School and Gay Style- more please Mr Lilley. im giving it 6/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter, but made up for it! 12 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
With the first few episodes, I felt a little disappointed with this show. However, as soon as the strands of the stories started coming together and the show moved from five standalone stories to one story mixed around the six main characters, Lilley certainly redeemed himself. All the build-up from the first half of the series was brought together and the last few episodes cemented Angry Boys as (in my humble opinion) the best Chris Lilley series so far. Highlight of the series, unsurprisingly, is the tear-jerker finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Chris Lilley 7 July 2011
By Manda:)
Format:DVD
This show is so funny,
I was wary at first because of how much I enjoyed `Summer Heights High' and `We can be Heroes', and to begin with this show did not feel so relatable but after a few episodes I really got into it and it has rapidly become of equal standing to `SHH'.

The format is slightly different in that there is not a documentary style narrative holding the characters together, in We can be heroes the Australian of the year competition was the reason the cameras had for 'following' the characters and in Summer Heights it was a exploration into the lives of 3 individuals at a school over 1 term, in Angry Boys the main link is the Sims brothers and there 'wall of legends' this instantly gave the series a different element than the other two and helped define it as more individual.

I love this show and can't wait for Chris Lilley to create his next bunch of characters to entertain. He is Such a genius.

This is a show that will be loved forever, and deservedly so!!!!!! :) :)

5.0 out of 5 stars He's one talented guy 6 April 2014
By Bookie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed everything Chris Lilley has recorded. Seems he's quite under rated in the UK and I don't understand why. He's had outings of series on BBC 3 but never hit mainstream, which is probably all to the good. But, for my money, his talent for parody and characterisation knocks the likes of Enfield and Partridge into the ground.

Lilley is convincing as himself or a teenage boy, or girl or mid life female prison officer...the list is endless but I find him original, unassuming and so very, very, funny. This DVD's a cracker.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved This Heaps 9 Jun 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The comedy genius of Chris Lilley of `Summer Heights High' fame returned with this rocking gem of a series. Chris plays a number of characters including identical twins, Daniel and Nathan Sim. Nathan is going profoundly deaf and reluctantly their mum has decided he has to go to Deaf School. So Daniel decides to throw the most awesomest farewell party ever in the uninspiring backwater where they live called `Dunt'. They also have a guinea pig loving grandmother, who works in a juvenile correction facility and is simply called `Gran, Chris also plays her.

We also get to see the lives of their `Legends', who are all being invited to the party. These heroes are surfing legend Blake Oakfield, African American rapper Schwayne Jr who is also called S.mouse! and has all the intellect of a door mouse and a girlfriend with the best name ever - Lasquisha. Chris Lilley plays both of these too. Then their third `Legend' is skate boarding hero Tim Okazaki, who has inspired his over controlling mother to turn him into a global brand, based on the fact that he is gay and therefore everything is `Gay Style', problem is that Tim is in fact straight. His mum is played by Chris too and is my favourite character in the whole show, but they are all pretty good if not excellent.

There are twelve episodes and the stories are all woven together really well and this is done in a documentary style, with interview pieces to camera as well as action footage. The humour can be quite gross in places especially where the twins are concerned and the language can be quite adult, but I just loved it heaps and was totally stoked by it enough to watch it twice. So if a bit of down under humour is your thing then you won't go far wrong with Angry Boys - oh and the opening titles are great too - ripper!
