2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Show, John
I bought this DVD for a friend who is a John Shuttleworth fan. We watched it together and cringed. It is poorly made, has little charm and the technical aspects (focus, bad photography and poor material) do little to help. I normally enjoyed the Shuttleworth humour but this was really taking the "joke" too far, the material is very weak and poorly produced.

This review is from: It's Nice Up North [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
John Shuttleworth (aka Graham Fellowes), takes a trip to the Shetland Islands to visit the most northerly places in Britain in his Austin Ambassador (Y Reg!), to test his theory that it's much nicer up north.

The movie takes the form of a comedy documentary and most of the other people appearing are, I assume, local people rather than paid actors. It has clearly been made on a shoestring budget and that's very much a part of its charm. Like the Shuttleworths radio shows, it has a very home made feel to it and the humour is just what any fan will expect. Placing John Shuttleworth in a longer format, rather than the usual short radio shows, leads occasionally to flat spots but they are relatively few and in the main the movie works well and has some very funny and charming moments, especially when Shuttleworth interacts with the locals. And of course there are a few classic songs.

This is a must buy for any Shuttleworths fan but is probably not the best introduction to his humour for someone not already familiar with him. Start with the radio shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its Hilarious Up North, 23 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Nice Up North [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
John Shuttleworth is pretty zany and this is probably the zaniest.

It is a very funny piece of work trying to prove the premise that, 'the further north you go in the UK the nicer the people are'.

A very funny video and highly commendable if you enjoy something a wee bit left field

1.0 out of 5 stars Its nice up North, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Nice Up North [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Absolute rubbish. Poorly made, totally unfunny and a complete waste of money and time!
Not worth a single star, and this review will not let me do that so had to give it one star, which should really be minus one.
