Grumpy old men, contrary to popular belief, apparently include 30 year old women - certainly this one. As they speak, you find yourself agreeing with everything they say; all their irritants are entirely valid, and they are wholly correct in their simmering fury. Except they inject their grumpery with lashings and lashings of laugh out loud funniness. Will Self (frequently unlikeable in so many ways) is a bonafide genius with words; Bill Nighy is a laconic wonder; Bob Geldof drops the worthiness and becomes a supremely enjoyable scowl on frowny legs and, of course, there's Sir Peel who can do no wrong.
They are joined by a legion of grumpy middle-aged men, all of whom are disappointed that it's not how Tomorrow's World promised it would be. They grumble about yoot speak, coffee bars, celebrity culture, politics and broken promises, technology, traffic, children, pretentious food, women who wear very little then frown upon your ogling their norks... on and on it goes, for 2 and a half wonderful hours. And that doesn't include the hour-long Christmas extra.
For this one, Jeremy Clarkson has joined their ranks as they rant about carol singers, the always-debacle Christmas lights, shopping... all the while, puffing furiously on cigarette after cigarette.
You would think it would be interminably depressing watching a bunch of old goats raving for 3 and a half hours. But, in fact, it's thoroughly joyous and life-affirming. It's always comforting knowing you're not alone in your catalogue of grievances but, more than that, they're just jolly good company.Read more ›
Hilariously funny observations on life and the human condition makes this title essential viewing. The grump of your house will, like me, repeatedly say "Too right" again and again and again when listening to the pearls of wisdom delivered on this disc. The package also includes an extended Christmas episode that really echoes what we all secretly feel about the forced jollity of the season - whcih nowadays starts shortly after August Bank Holiday!
We watched it together with some friends of the family, all btw 55 - 65 and they were crying, they were laughing so hard!
So definitely the perfect gift to any man who can be described to be a little bit grumpy at times ;)
It's not so much a cynical view of the way life is but a real reflection of society these days from annoying answering machines to singers. At times there are laugh out loud comments made. I'll be ordering Grumpy Old Women soon.
