Product description

Product Description

Christmas 1991 heralded a new direction for the lads from Peckham in two feature length episodes, split over 2 days, covering the wheelin’ and dealin’ antics of the Trotter clan. In The American Dream, Del cuts a deal with the local church and an Eastern block wine distributor for bulk blessing of communion wine... the trouble is it’s white wine. Then he manages to con Rodney into taking him on holiday to Florida when Cassandra can’t make it.

In Part Two Oh to Be In England the hapless Trotter brothers arrive in Miami, pick up their budget holiday camper and set off for the bright lights. Pretty soon their luggage has been stolen, Del’s been mistaken for a Mafia Don and the mob are planning to bump him off so the real Don can escape undetected. Add Boycie and Marlene on holiday, a runaway jet ski and a swamp full of alligators into the mix and the mean streets of Peckham begin to look very welcome indeed!

Running Time: 139 minutes approx.

From Amazon.co.uk

The 1991 Christmas Special of the best-loved UK sitcom of its time, Only Fools and Horses: Miami Twice is a two-parter which takes Del Boy and Rodney on a transatlantic jaunt that turns out to be more than the jolly boys' excursion they'd bargained for. The action begins in Peckham, with the christening of Del's recently born child Damien. Never without an eye for the main chance, Del takes the vicar aside and outlines a scheme to save "vicar hours" and get a "nicker and a bit ahead" by "pre-blessing" lorry loads of Romanian wine he's arranged to be imported, selling them on to other clergymen. Rodney, meanwhile, has received a pensions fund rebate and Del unscrupulously engineers it so that the pair of them jet off to Miami where he looks forward to showing off his leopardskin trunks.

The first part of Miami Twice is classic stuff, featuring the familiar ensemble with some vintage idiocy from Trigger and some hilarious farce involving a baby intercom. The second part, however, set in America, is a let-down, involving as it does a rather lame and far-fetched plot in which Del turns out to be the double of a local Don (an excuse for David Jason to deliver a hackneyed Godfather impersonation). A cameo from Richard Branson feels like product placement and generally the Trotters feel all at sea when off their home turf. A Christmas audience, stuffed with pudding, would have indulged this over-rich fare but there's no reason to come back for seconds. Still, it's worth it for the first 50 minutes.

On the DVD: Only Fools and Horses: Miami Twice has no special features on DVD but holds up well visually, albeit unable to rid the original of blights such as a distracting burst of studio light in the first part. --David Stubbs

As with most Only Fools & Horses DVDs, this one has also been edited for "contractual reasons". Missing scenes include a hilarious meet-and-greet between the Trotters and the Mafia men. Originally broadcast as two episodes, they've been put together on the DVD and a horrendous laughter track has been added, making the dialogue difficult to hear at times. The show itself would get four stars, but due to the edits and sound mix, I'll give this DVD two stars because the edits aren't as bad as say 'A Royal Flush'.

While the episode is one of the best, the way they presented it on the DVD is nothing short of appaling. The show was originally broadcast as 2 seperate epsiodes on 2 different days. The first was like a "narmal" epsiode, but the second was like a TV movie- shot entirely on film, with lots of incidental music and no canned laughter. Sadly, the makers of this DVD have decided to attatch the two episodes together, and put a laughter track on the 2nd. This heavily detracts from the episode, as the laughter is not menat to be there, and on several occasions interfered with dialogue.
