Pope Town [DVD]
Customers who bought this item also bought
Welcome to the star-studded and very irreverent world of Popetown. Featurting the voices of cheeky Ruby Wax, supermodel Jerry Hall and The Offices Mackenzie Crook, imagine a cross between Father Ted and South Park. Office politics exist in any workplace, but in Popetown theres a bizarre twist : the company is the Vatican and the Chief Executive happens to be the Pope. The long-suffering Father Nicholas runs the back-office at Popetown, a job that includes anything from ordering Fridays frozen fish fingers to planning prestigious public masses. Each day he struggles against the insane and chaotic bureaucracy of Popetown. He is so much a part of the fabric of Popetown that he can no longer see just how bizarre the others are : the sinister, corrupt and mysteriously wealthy Cardinals; the fame-obsessed TV reporter Sister Penelope ; the 77 year-old eccentric Pope with all the charm of an obnoxious seven-year-old (who likes Father Nicholoas so much that he takes baths with him); and Sister Marie, Father Nicholas devoted and innocent assistant, who all too often acts before, or even without, thinking.

Ruby Wax truly is obnoxious in this, but the constant screaming wears thin, and she (as the Pope) looks very much a Japanese cartoon character. Father Nicholas looks fine (apart from his trainers), and Sister Marie is entirely lovely, if not ripped off from Mrs Doyle (there are a few 'tea' moments reminiscent of Father Ted).
Overall, not offensive, not overly funny, but it isn't as bad as you'd expect.
