First, I actually OWN and have WATCHED this DVD (a bit of a rarity nowdays for reviews on Amazon I know!) I am a big Peter Kay fan but I am so disappointed with this latest release.
As previous reviewers have already said, this is a collection of all the adverts, interviews, TV shows & general appearances which Peter has appeared in. To an avid fan these might be interesting (once?) but to anyone who just wants a good laugh the whole thing feels contrived and laboured.
First of all, there isn't even a menu to select your favourite item!! Want to watch that John Smith ad? or his appearance on Children in Need? then you have to put the disc in and fast forward or "advance to the next chapter" repeatedly until you find it! Ridiculous!
Secondly, the interviews are disjointed and cut into different chapters! So when you put the disc in the running goes something like this;
A not-very-funny 2 minute stand up from "Gas" (no, me neither)
A John Smith advert (top bombing)
2 minutes from his interview on Parkinson
1 minute stand up from "Children in need"
A advert for his own book "the Sound of Laughter"
A not-very-funny 5 minute sketch from the not-very-funny "Catherine Tate" show
A 1 minute appearance on "Granada reports"
Another couple of minutes from his Parkinson interview
The Texas "Sleep" video
Another one of the John Smith ads
a 1 minute stand up taken from "The Last Laugh Show"
another 1 minute appearance on "Granada tonight"
another few minutes from Parkinson......and so on and so forth
zzzzzzzzzzzz.................you get the picture?
I wanted to love this DVD, really Peter I did. But I couldn't. and when you consider the vast array of comedy DVD's out there recently released for the Christmas market then there is NO WAY I can condone anyone wasting their money on this. Sorry!
