It was the night after Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse, (because Sue is a mouse-killer, and Karen has long buried it.)
So as the family recover from a break-in, Pete and Sue decide to swindle the insurance company, whilst telling Jake not to download his music illegally. Meanwhile, Karen continues to ask questions about her 'gift of a goat to a family in Sub-Sahara' and Ben chooses to watch Christmas television, only to find the man 'ONLY had to kill three men' in the whole film.
BCA Award winning 'Outnumbered' is a great sit-com, highlighting the everyday lives of the 2.4 suburban family. This christmas speical may not contain lots of particularly festive themes, but the laughs are still there. It is a lovely family comedy that everyone can watch and a great link to the long awaited series 3.
Yet another superbly entertaining edition from the Brockman household. This depiction of family life is so realistic that it makes anybody with children and parents relate to it in some aspect. Let's face it, who hasn't had a child that at some point has not very loudly pointed out a characteristic which somebody would rather not have attention drawn to, or an elderly relative who hasn't told the same story over and over again! The actors in Outnumbered could not have been more brilliantly cast. Their interaction with one another is natural, fluent and extremely funny.
Superlative! The best! Sums up a male view though! When my daughter asked her husband shall we watch the whole series, he said can we not - it stresses me out! Is a very unique and actual view of family life! What's not to like!!
Usual high class comedy with excellent child actors, this episode was by usual standards not better or worse, I was expecting something more and certainly longer. very watchable just to see the kids in action
Money well spent ! This is entertainment for all ages,a laugh for the most stuffy people who would normally find kids a bore and a nuisance.No matter how often one watches this there is always something that one has missed the previous time.The entire family has so much input that surely there can't be anyone around who would not be jollied along with the banter on this disc,what is more it is SO beleivable.
This is an absolutely brilliant, family-comedy DVD, suiting children and adults alike. My grandson, Benjamin,who is 13 years old, absolutely loves it. I think he finds the family on the DVD is similar to his own in a lot of ways and he makes comparisons. His brother is 9 and his sister is 7. The children are superb actors. A good way to cheer myself up if I am feeling blue is to watch this DVD.
A family trying to hold it together through teen, mid-child ADHD and tiny precocious - love them warts and all. A super product as long as you go with the flow of the characters. If you understand ADHD, this will be very familiar. Well packaged and delivery efficient. Thanks.
So funny and true to life even if a bit exaggerated at times. Never laughed so much and can be watched over and over again. You also need to buy the box set for series 1 & 2 - puts the Christmas special into context. Cant wait for series 3!
