TV on DVD – French and Saunders at the Movies

Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders starred in the British comedy show French and Sunders for several series (in America: seasons) from 1987 through 1999. After that they did specials and had one more series of 6 shows in 2004, the copyright year of this DVD. Their show parodied movies, television programming, commercials, pretty much any and everything. This DVD has the opening credits, a large number of movie parodies (Misery, Silence of the Lambs, etc.), and a few “bridges” which illustrate the other targets of their fun, followed by expanded closing credits, all in 1:40. Very funny material, but if you’re in a hurry there is one special feature: one episode completely devoted to “The Phantom Millennium”, with Dawn playing Ewan McGregor and Jennifer playing Liam Neeson. This is screamingly funny stuff, not to be missed in anyone’s lifetime. Dawn also has a turn as Natalie Portman which is simply hilarious. Whatever it costs you, it’s worth it. Literally!
