There are 37 clips in all and the running time is well over 2 hours. Of course there are the inevitable duffers; (for me the Jamie King sketch left me cold and I thought there were better 'Flight of the Conchords' clips to choose from) but comedy is a subjective and personal matter so what one person finds boring someone else finds hilarious. (A personal highlight for me was Ricky Gervais & Friends in Kenya but I'm well aware some people can't stand him so hey ho! One man's meat is another man's poison etc)
Fortunately each clip is an individual "chapter" so if someone comes on you don't like, just hit that "Next chapter" button and you're onto the next one! (something Peter Kay should have done on his recent 'Special Kay' DVD if anyone was unfortunate enough to buy that!)
All in all a great selection of clips, good value for money and the knowledge that you're helping a good cause! Buy it!
This DVD does not represent 2001 successfully where the music industry is concerned. Kylie Minogue's 'Can't Get You...' was definently one of 2001's hottest tunes yet it does not appear on this DVD. Sophie Ellis Bextor became a new solo artist and her delightful 'Take Me Home' debut also does not appear. What about big names like Britney Spears, Destiny's Child, N'SYNC, Samantha Mumba, 5ive, Louise, Madonna, Mis-teeq etc... I think these NOW! people are only good at coming up with audio CD complimations not DVD videos!
Although it does make a good purchase for those who like most of the artists featured on the DVD, who have not released DVD singles of their own.
It's Raining Men - Geri Halliwell: I really like this video and I like her version of this song too. Her body looks great and she dances really good as well. I like the theme of the video. It starts off like the famous audition scene from the movie "Flashdance" and then turns into "Fame" like the movie and tv show. It's a very energetic video. Very entertaining and inspiring to watch. It makes you want to dance and work out and go to a performing arts school.
What Took You So Long - Emma Bunton: I like this song. Her voice is very soothing and the song has a nice rhythm. Nice desert video too.
Not Such An Innocent Girl - Victoria Beckham: This song is okay to good. It has the potential to be better if she sang a little stronger and if some of the simple lyrics were changed. Also the concept of the video starts off with a great idea but then gets too overshadowed with all the computer graphics. I give it a C+/B- but A for the effort.
