Hit and miss compilation,
This review is from: Kenny Everett - The Complete Naughty Bits! [DVD] (DVD)
I had great happy memories of this comic genius - but sadly, this compilation doesn't really do them justice.
For starters, it certainly isn't the naughtiest of the "naughty bits". That, surely would have to include the Hot Gossip dancer who famously hadn't ... er-hem... shaved too well. Not to mention the classic Brother Lee Love scene in which the audience repeats the last word of each line, to extremely naughty effect. Or how about the Sid Snot classic - "So I said to my girl - your knickers are coming down. How do you know? She replied. No no. It's an order, not an observation... (or words to that effect).
Sorry, but this is pretty bland material, that covers none of the edgier stuff that cuddly Ken famously got away with on TV.
Some of the Marcel Wave scenes are still very funny (the mirror scene with David Essex is brilliant), and the final scene, with Kenny being dumped in a dustbin is genuinely poignant, but overall, this is a generally uninspired collection.
Finally, the disappointing "extras" are just a flat text account of Kenny's life and a superfluous repeat of some Carla and Hot Gossip bits that are already included in the main feature!
Please, let's have a genuine naughty bits DVD sometime soon!
