Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love Warwick Davis! 16 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
