It was not as funny as I seemed to remember French and Saunders being....was desperate to see Jennifer Saunders stand behind the curtains like she always did and that didn't show...someone else choose the clips methinks, anyway was cheap so not too upset

I Loved this DVD. I'm a huge fan of French and Saunders, and was a bit daunted at what to expect reading the other reviews, but wasn't at all dissapointed. I believe F&S were at their comic best in the late 80's early 90's which is where most of these sketches came from. Fantastic stuff. If you like the latest offerings from the girls then this DVD probably isn't for you,but if you're a purist like me, then its amazing. The detail and timing in the 'School Trip' sketch is perfect and very very funny. There are a couple of classic sketches not included, again early 90's late 80's ones (BBC Wardrobe girls, 'its not a Jan Leeming' and "Chambermaid!"), would have been excellent additions. Might as well get on the bandwagon and moan about lack of extras on BBC DVD's, which always drags them down a bit.

Being a long time fan of French & Saunders, I was looking forward to the release of this DVD. The girls have produced a lot of great comedy. However, much of that great comedy is sadly missing on this DVD. Where, for instance, is that unforettable sketch involving the trial of Ralph MacTell, the Lynda La Plante "characters" ("What a Bleeding Dump!") and the numerous take off of the stars? Instead, we have to endure 90 minute of (mainly) tepid comedy involving the "Fat Men", "Dance Quickies" and "The House of Idiot."
There are few genuinely funny routines from their repertoire (thus the 2 stars), but the BBC are well short of the mark by calling this DVD "The Best Of French & Saunders."

Thoroughly enjoyed going back to my era when this was first aired on TV. Anyone who was in their teens/ twenties in the eighties will think likewise. Very clever humour and still just as funny. Will enjoy watching it all again as there is always some little nuance that was previously overlooked.

Great fun - and they look like naughty girls in this dvd - would have liked more skits included - and less of the 2 oid men. I/ve knocked a star off because I thought it included their Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell sketch - but it's not there - so where is it??????

Rather disappointing, not what I expected, there are some very good episodes, but some a very boring.
