Reviews

From the creators of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, comes an all new fake documentary starring Warwick Davis - Life’s Too Short.

With his career on the slide, a massive tax bill caused by his useless accountant and a wife who's divorcing him, the showbiz actor has no choice but to open his doors to a film crew 24/7. Maybe living his life like an open wound will get him back on top? The film crew charts Warwick's every move as he tries to maintain his pride and self-respect in some very unusual situations.

Starring Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Jo Enright, Steve Brody, Rosamund Hanson and Shaun Williamson plus guest appearances from Liam Neeson, Johnny Depp, Sting, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis and Keith Chegwin.

As a fan of The Office and Extras, I knew that I would be watching Life's Too Short on DVD. Going into it I expected that it would not venture far from Ricky Gervais's tried and true formula, which it doesn't, but I found Warwick Davis very refreshing. I love that he, a bona fide actor, embraces this character completely and is not shy about physical humor, which I love, and his facial expressions are priceless. You really begin to empathize with the world he lives in, but the whole comedy is not based on his stature, thankfully. He is able to draw in the audience in a way that Andy Millman did not, and keeps you teetering on, "Is he a jerk, or a nice guy surrounded by idiots?"
My favorite episode in this series is the one with Johnny Depp, a MUST SEE for JD fans. I love that Shaun Williamson is back, but his potential is sorely underutilized. Les Dennis and Keith Chegwin are a welcome sight, but their appearances are rather stiff and unnatural. The woman playing he receptionist really gets on my nerves, but that's part of the plan. People who complain that Gervais and Merchant have made the same series three times can't see the delicious irony of the play within a play, when actors are acting as actors... it can get confusing, but is great fun.

Because the BBC kept shifting schedules on this I only ever caught it a couple of times when it was shown on TV. So glad I bought the DVD to watch it in full because it is laugh aloud funny in places. I have watched the Liam Neeson bit about ten times and tears rolled down my face every time. In the same vein as The Office, it will have you squirming and watching through your fingers in embarrassment. Warwick Davis is fantastic.

Very good comedy and Warwick Davis is brilliant. if you like The Office and Extras then you will definitely enjoy Life’s Too Short, although they are so similar you may find yourself making comparisons, Warwick’s character is basically another version of David Brent and there are so many similarities, which isn’t necessary a bad thing. I do think though I would have enjoyed it even more had I never seen The Office and Extras as the humour would be so fresh.

There are some hilarious scenes acted out brilliantly by all the actors, certain scenes still had me still laughing for ages afterwards - when Warwick and his accountant are in a nightclub and they try to chat up two girls - when he goes on a second date with someone he met through an agency and then tries to catch the attention of another woman in front of his date, and I really loved Liam Neeson’s scene.

I would definitely recommend it.

quite simply, this is perfect, funny as fxxk, tragic and brilliant, hell its the gervais way, he writes this with merchant and its flawless, it could be better than the office, extras, hell even derek but i wont state that just yet until i watch this over and over again but it has blown me away. Warwick davis is brilliant here, playing a loser version of himself who has ideas above his current station and he is a real flop in life now and he is comedy gold, we even get barry from eastenders, keith chegwin, les dennis, the supporting cast is great, everyone excels. This is funny stuff, like really, i had tears from laughing and i havent said that in years , its a world class thing and i want more. i need it.

very very funny, really enjoyed watching this over xmas, ricky gervais and stephen merchant are masters of this style of comedy,great performances all round and the real star of this Warwick Davis is a genius, loved Rosamund Hanson who plays Warwicks PA, and Steve Brody who's Warwicks accountant. i laughed until it hurt all the way through this. hope they team up for a second series.
