Not So Great Comedy Moments,
This review is from: BBC Great Comedy Moments [DVD] (DVD)
On buying this DVD, I was expecting a laugh a minute. With over 100 minutes of classic comedy moments, this DVD offered much. While there are some fanastic moments such as Del Boy playing it 'nice and cool' then falling through the bar and The Two Ronnies 'Fork Handles' sketch, there appears to be a lack of other classic moments. For instance, there is not one Monty Python sketch, even the legendary Parrot sketch doesn't make it, nor are there any contributions from more recent comedy shows such as The Fast Show or Goodness Gracious Me. Although the latter two are much more recent than the other comedy shows that feature on the disc, only produced in 2001, one would have thought that the BBC would have acknowledged these award-winning shows with some sort of feature.
It is a funny DVD and you certainly get your money's worth. There are plenty of timeless classic comedy moments on here and you'll soon find a favourite but after watching it, I was left wondering why certain other sketches were not featured and therefore slightly disappointed.
