Product Description

Product Description

Created by comedian Paul Kaye, the obnoxious American punk Dennis Pennis was the scourge of celebrities in the mid-1990s. After hijacking press conferences and insulting actors at premiers with his spoof interviews and offensive questions, Pennis eventually found himself too famous to successfully approach the celebrities he was trying to abuse and was 'killed off' by Kaye in 1997. This complete set brings together the three previous Dennis Pennis collections: 'Very Important Pennis'; 'Anyone for Pennis?' and 'RIP - Too Rude to Live.'

Synopsis

Wherever he goes, Dennis Pennis (Paul Kaye) leaves a trail of embarrassment in his wake. From London to the Venice Film Festival and on to Hollywood, no-one is spared, no star is too big to escape verbal abuse. Victims include Steve Martin, Pierce Brosnan, Don Johnson, Jim Carrey, Richard Gere, Sharon Stone, Sandra Bullock, Charlie Sheen, Cindy Crawford, Demi Moore and Arnold Schwarzennegger. If you're a star, beware! Pennis is out to get you. This release includes previously released Very Important Pennis, Anyone For Pennis? and RIP - Too Rude to Live.

This superb collection takes in the original Sunday Show compilation, Anyone for Pennis, as well as the later spin-off, Very Important Pennis, and the video special, Dennis Pennis RIP. It's pretty much the only Pennis collection you'll ever need... giving us the complete run down of all of his classic celebrity-bating moments, from his inauspicious beginnings in 1995, right the way through to his more outlandish antics of 1996, and beyond that to 1997... the point when the character was unceremoniously axed from the BBC following his infamous "why aren't you funny anymore?" quip, to the actor, Steve Martin.
The first series, 'Anyone for...' seems fairly inoffensive ten years on, with Dennis sticking to home grown stars like Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson, and generally - for the most part at least - going pretty easy on them (...especially if we compare some of the put downs here to the ones that would crop up in 'VIP'). There was also less reliance on comic-sketches to intersperse the celeb-based footage, so this was essentially Pennis mark. 1... before people started to get in on the joke. As with the other two series, 'Anyone For...' is great stuff; funny in the sense that we can't believe this guy would have the nerve to slag off these celebrities right to their pompous faces, but genuinely funny in the way that actual the gags are written and, of course, the dry and sarcastic manner in which Paul Kaye delivers them. The definite highlight from this series for me was the interaction between Dennis and Hugh Grant, with that great, cutting gab; "Hugh, I've often found your acting a little woody... I mean, how do you get yourself psyched up for a role? Do you go into the forest and stare at some trees?" to which Grant can only blather the F-word before slinking away.

Spot on!! Great to see this disc released with all Dennis Pennis antics on it. It is as expected with my favourites being the trumpton gag on Donald Trump & the concentrate orange gag on Helena Christiansen. Superb, was in fits of laughter all the way through. Disc is rated an 18 and needs to be as alot of choice language used throughout. Also great to see the little britian stars helping out in Pennis RIP. If youve never heard of Dennis Pennis get it to see top stars having the mickey taken out of them when he goes to interview them. If you have heard of him, you will be buying this disc anyway. Fantastic!!!

By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Dec. 2015
Format: DVD
Dennis Pennis, a fictional creation of comedian and actor Paul Kaye was the UK's first celebrity interviewer from hell. His rude line of questioning, punctuated by his acid tongue and razor sharp quick wit was felt by legions of megastars like Mel Gibson, Sandra Bullock, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hugh Grant, Madonna, and many politicians, regardless of their political persuasion, all of which, alongside many more are included on this fantastic, value-for-money BBC DVD from 2005.

The content here spans the bespectacled Dennis' entire career from 1995 to 1997, from when he was first given life on BBC Two's 'The Sunday Show', followed by his own series 'Anyone for Pennis', as well as the complete VHS special 'Too Rude To Live', released in 2000.

Essentially, this is three releases in one volume. The first is 'Anyone For Penis' (2000), a VHS collection containing some classic interviews, with new footage of Dennis hosting, which is very funny. The second is 'Very Important Pennis Uncut' (2000), which features the best of his Hollywood travels, complete with 15 minutes of footage which never made the television, including Dennis' video diary, and a tour of the BBC. The final is the aforementioned 'Too Rude To Live', the third and final Pennis video, which saw the master funny man come to a sticky, and final end. The DVD looks has handy menus, making it easy to locate your favourite interview with a certain name.

As time went on, Dennis got cheekier, edgier, and pulled no punches. This is mean spirited humour yes, but very, very funny to see those unsuspecting, sometimes obnoxious celebrities on the red carpet in either London or LA, be brought back down to earth by a strange looking, little ginger headed fella with a microphone, made for superb entertainment.

There is stuff on this DVD that is missing from the original broadcasts...

There is also a selection on the menu that does not work, because when I go to select it, it BEGINS to play but then crashes back to the menu.

Only bought it because I thought that I was going to ALL the material on high quality DVD, instead of watching low quality uploads on youtube.

Just seen Mr Kevin Costner at the premiere of the new Superman movie "Man of Steel". (I'm sure he is gonna be good in it.) Reminded me of the time he gave an excellent interview on Parkinson, telling the story of how he had met Richard Burton on a plane ,as an unknown actor. But I don't remember him for that. Or Waterworld, or the Bodyguard movie with the late Whitney Houston. What I remember when I see him is the time he COMPLETELY flipped out on Mr Dennis Pennis ......low budget guy indeed lol. Time for a remake I think. Fancy playing D.P. Mr C? ;-)
