5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Gray (Brighton), 9 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tutti Frutti [DVD] [1987] (DVD)
I watched this as a young twenty something when it first aired back in 1987 and had always harboured very fond views of it . I purchased the DVD with some trepidation worried that my memory may have oversold it to me and for the first episode and a half the slow pace (by today's standards)left me slightly deflated. However the series then hit its stride and the belly laughs came thick and fast mixed with moments of real sadness and beautiful poignancy.Some of the physical comedy in particular had tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks. Volcanic eruptions of anger from the various band members produce the best moments. The Majestics are a band that are ever only one barbed comment away from World War Three. All the actors are on the top of their game but special mention to Maurice Roeves as Vinny (more the fire man than the iron man of Scottish rock!) who comes up with the mother of all cataclysmic breakdowns at the end.Oh and Emma Thompson deserves praise for mastering a perfect Glasgow accent and looking so damn gorgeous.A five star must buy, it has not dated.
