Product Description

Product Description

Double set of mockumentary comedy series created and performed by Australian comedian Chris Lilley. 'Summer Heights High' (2007) parodies high-school life through the three main characters (all played by Lilley): camp 'Director of Performing Arts' Mr G, who dreams of attaining artistic heights; private school exchange student Ja'mie King, who's forced to slum it in the backwaters; and hard-as-nails Tongan student Jonah Takalua, who's trying to avoid being expelled. Contains all eight episodes from Series 1. 'We Can Be Heroes' (2005) is a satirical look at the search for the 'Australian of the Year', with the five contenders all played by Lilley. Contains all six episodes.

Synopsis

Summer Heights High, written by and starring Chris Lilley, is the award winning Australian mockumentary series starring three of the funniest protagonists - all played by Lilley - to hit our screens in years.


The effeminate, yet megalomaniacal, Greg Gregson--aka 'Mr G'--is the self-appointed 'Director of Performing Arts', passionate about his 'innovative' teaching methods and determined to write his own 'Arena Spectacular'. Summer Heights High is the third school in eighteen months for Jonah Takalulah, a teenager with Attention Deficit Disorder and problems with aggression. His best hope is to avoid being expelled, but he says he's 'not dumb' he's just 'choosing not to be smart at the minute.' Private school exchange student Ja'mie King is struggling to cope away from her privileged background at 'like, the boganist school ever.'
Also incudes the mocumentary series We Can Be Heroes.

Reviewing films is very subjective, but in my opinion Summer Heights High is a very very funny comedy. It pushes the boundaries and some of the jokes are quite risky, but it pays off. We Can Be Heroes tries to take things a step further by being a bit wacky, but it doesn't quite capture my imagination like SHH does. I will let you read the plots elsewhere, but if you are buying it as a present and want to be assured its a well packaged purchase, then buy with confidence!

Chris Lilley is a comic genius! I've watched these shows so many times and I still laugh out loud every time! Summer Heights High is the best of the 2 series as I found it more funny and more rewatchable. Ja'mie King is the best character and she appears in both of these series and now has her own series Private School Girl which is testament to how good the character is. Buy it now!

Hilariously cringeworthy characters populate this brilliantly observed pair of mockumentaries from Australia's Chris Lilley, with all the leads played by Lilley himself, regardless of race, creed, disability or gender. Sharp cult comedy that leaves you wanting more and the song from Mr G - the Musical, 'Naughty Girl' going round and round in your head for months afterwards.

I am from the UK, and came across Angry Boys first, and ended up working my way backwards to Summer Heights High and then to We Can Be Heroes. Instantly, Chris Lilley's rather satirical works are up at my top favourite comedy series (from the UK: Alan Partridge, Peep Show, Black Books, Spaced, etc) which I could watch again and again.. especially when chilling with my friends with some smokes.

Chris Lilley is a pure genius; he plays all of the main characters in his works. Despite this, you always end up seeing them as entirely different people with different mannerisms, facial expressions, and very believable 3d personalities. Even Daniel and Nathan, who are supposed to be identical twins, are very noticeably different. Chris Lilley's ability to pay attention to details in his acting, and portrayal of his characters, is amazing.

I feel the need to seek out some more comedy series and mockumentaries from Australia, but I fear that the bar has been set and I might be disappointed!

I bought this boxset after watching Angry Boys and I have never had so many laughs from a programme in a long time, Chris Lilley is exceptionally talented and portrays each character so well, it's hard to remember that each character is played by the same guy
I can't imagine any teenager that wouldn't like this, I even got my mum hooked on it
There are plenty of extra's on the dvd's
So pleased with this DVD it's a must buy!

I have been watching Angry Boys on BBC3 and really enjoyed it, a friend of mine said that the creator had done two series before, so I ordered them and I was so glad I did. Really enjoyed both the dvds. Happy with seller dvds arrived within a couple of days. Would recommend and use again.

Summer Heights High and Angry Boys are in my opinion the best series that Chris Lilley has done. I'm not so much for We Can Be Heroes but I'd say check all of the spinoffs out anyway if you're a Lilley fan
