2.0 out of 5 stars A great pleasure gone stale, 3 Sep 2008
Ace fantastical comedy series loses the comedy and becomes a massive self-congratulatory tugfest. Gutted. Interestingly, the children in the family's loyalty is unwavering whereas the big un's are all agreed that the funny has done a runner, that may mean nowt but may mean everything. I hate saying this, but for me it's time to put the Boosh to bed. I'll look forward to whatever the chaps get up to next time though, as a team or as individuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent polemic from an erudite man of conscience., 3 Feb 2008
I have very little to add that the previous reviewer, Mr James Phillips, hasn't said already apart from addressing a couple of the criticisms laid out earlier in the review pages. Firstly, in my opinion and contrary to that of some of the previous reviewers, it is entirely possible to take pleasure in both this book and The God Delusion, provided you can clear the gargantuan hurdle of the fact (shock) that they were written by two different people with different attitudes and different aims. Secondly, if you want to take a gander at some of the sad contortions of logic and ill-conceived metaphysics that the "informed faithful" resort to justify their belief in fairy tales, just have a look further down the page and shake your head sadly or have a giggle, depending on your disposition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Like the ravings of London's most reactionary taxi driver., 9 Nov 2007
This review is from: Outlaw [DVD] (DVD)
Definately one of the worst films I've seen this year, it's utterly distateful while simultaneously totally banal. One of the other reviewers was bang on, the film plays like a Daily Mail subscribers' deepest, darkest (but also favorite) fantasy. If you want a British revenge film that doesn't insult your intelligence on every level I heartily recommend Dead Man's Shoes.
