A Bit of Fry and Laurie
The Complete Second Series

A Bit of Fry and Laurie

Starring: Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
Bonus feature: The Cambridge Footlights Revue (1982) also starring Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tony Slattery and Emma Thompson.

Before Hugh Laurie was House, before Stephen Fry was Wilde, even before they were Jeeves & Wooster, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie wrote and stared in their own inimitable sketch comedy series on the BBC. Witty and urbane, Fry and Laurie lampoon an endless array of targets with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. Absurdities abound as they devise new swearwords not yet banned for broadcast, and Fry impersonates Michael Jackson. Catch such Fry & Laurie favourites as the profane cliché-slingers John and Peter, international gunrunner and man of mystery Alan, and insipid MI5 agent Tony Murchison and his coffee-obsessed boss Control. Only a handful of creative works succeed in capturing the totality of human existence, from birth to death, through love, transfiguration and redemption. A Bit of Fry and Laurie, the BBC television series co-starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, has been said, on two occasions, to be among this group.

A Bit of Fry & Laurie: Series 1 and 2

A Bit of Fry and Laurie 1 and 2

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are best known outside of their native U.K. for the various acting roles they've taken in major productions. In Fry's case, big-screen roles in WILDE and PETER'S FRIENDS helped establish his name. In Laurie's case, the hit TV show HOUSE made him a firm favorite with American audiences. They are also known and loved for their joint turn in the irreverent class-based comedy JEEVES & WOOSTER. But U.K. viewers first warmed to their talents at the tail end of the 1980s, with A BIT OF FRY AND LAURIE. The show is comprised of a quick-fire selection of sketches, interspersed with Fry and Laurie donning various silly guises and being interviewed as if they were ordinary members of the public who have been asked to air their views on a hot topic of the day. The writing and performances are still as fresh as when the shows first aired, and demonstrate both the quick-witted nature of the pair and their reluctance to pander to their audience. The entire first and second seasons of the hugely influential show are included here.

A Bit of Fry & Laurie: The Complete Collection...Every Bit
Series 1 - 4 (Box Set)

Fry and Laurie Box Set

All four series of A Bit of Fry & Laurie, the shows characterised by sophisticated verbal comedy and inspired sketches from Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie were among the most successful acts of the alternative comedy show Saturday Live/Friday Night Live and after a Christmas pilot in 1987, the BBC commissioned a series in 1989. Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity-included regular acts such as not so super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies, John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr Music with plenty of Vox Pops.

With four brilliant series of great satire, comic genius and an hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.

Directed by: Mel Smith

Try as he might, Cliff Starkey (Paul Kaye) just can’t keep out of trouble. In his sleepy hometown on the English coast, nothing much inspires him... apart from bowls. Cliff dreams of playing for his country, but has always preferred following his own rules much to the disapproval of the stuck up local bowls club. When Rick Schwartz (Vince Vaughn), a slick American sports agent, takes Cliff under his wing, the bad boy of bowls’ rock ‘n roll attitude and outrageous hero antics soon turn him into a national icon, with hysterical results. Also starring James Cromwell, Alice Evans and comedian Johnny Vegas, Blackball is a hilarious British comedy that will quite literally bowl you over!

DVD Extras: Director’s audio commentary. Cast and crew interviews. Trailers and TV spots.

How to Get Ahead in Advertising

How to get ahead in advertising

Starring: Richard E. Grant, John Shrapnel, Richard Wilson, Rachel Ward,Tony Slattery, Susan Wooldridge, Jacqueline Pearce, Mick Ford

A witty and acclaimed cult satire from the director of Withnail & I, in which a marketing executive unable to think of a catchy slogan starts to develop an unattactive boil, which gradually transforms into a second head. Grant is superb as the hapless businessman, and the dissection of the worthlessness of the advertising industry is deliciously savage.

Peter's FriendsPeter's Friends

 

Starring: Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Tony Slattery, Rita Rudner

Friends for ten years, they gather together one New Year's Eve weekend to share laughter, tears, sex, no sex, old friendships and new discoveries, all the while making absolute fools of themselves.

Ten years after they were members of a music and comedy troupe at Cambridge University, a diverse group of friends in their early 30s gather at the expansive estate of Peter Morton (Stephen Fry), who's invited them there for a reunion. Among the guests are Andrew (Branagh), who has married Carol (Rita Rudner), the star of the American situation comedy he writes; lonely Maggie (Emma Thompson), who thinks she may be in love with Peter; Roger (Hugh Laurie) and Mary (Imelda Staunton), a couple in advertising who have lost a child; and single Sarah (Alphonsia Emmanuel), who's always attracted to the wrong men, including her latest boyfriend, the married Brian (Tony Slattery). Also on hand is Vera (Phyllida Law, the real-life mother of Thompson), a housekeeper who has protectively watched over Peter since childhood. Over the course of the weekend, various jealousies and fears are revealed between joyous feasts, but a startling, tragic announcement from Peter puts everyone's petty dramas into proper perspective. American stand-up comedienne Rudner wrote the screenplay with her husband, (Martin Bergmann).

Red Dwarf Vol. 2

Red Dwarf 2

Amazon.co.uk Review
The second series of Red Dwarf is, as Danny John-Jules says in the accompanying DVD commentary, "the one where it really went good". First broadcast in the autumn of 1988, these six episodes showcase Rob Grant and Doug Naylor's sardonic, sarcastic humour to perfection. The writing has matured, no longer focussing solely on SF in-jokes and gags about bodily functions, instead allowing the humour to develop from the characters and their sometimes surprisingly poignant interactions: Lister's timeless love for Kochanksi, for example, or Rimmer's brief memory-implanted love for one of Lister's ex-girlfriends. The cast had gelled, too, and there's even more colour this year as the drab sets are spiced up, a little more money has been assigned to models and special effects, and the crew even go on location once in a while.

"Kryten" introduces us to the eponymous house robot (here played by David Ross), although after this first episode he was not to reappear until Series 3, when Robert Llewellyn made the role his own. Then in "Better Than Life" the show produced one of its all-time classic episodes, as the boys from the Dwarf take part in a virtual reality game that's ruined by Rimmer's tortured psyche. Other highlights include "Queeg", in which Holly is replaced by a domineering computer personality, the baffling time travel paradox of "Stasis Leak", the puzzling conundrum of "Thanks for the Memory", and the astonishingly feminine "Parallel Universe".

On the DVD: Red Dwarf, Series 2 has another chaotic and undisciplined group commentary from the cast, all clearly enjoying the opportunity to reminisce. The second disc has a host of fun extras, including an "A-Z of Red Dwarf", outtakes, deleted scenes, a Doug Naylor interview, model shots, and the full, unexpurgated "Tongue Tied" music video. As with the first set, the animated menus are great fun and the "Play All" facility is the most useful little flashing button ever created. --Mark Walker

Crying Game


Neil Jordan's The Crying Game is an unpredictable, unconventional, multi-Oscar nominated masterpiece that became a genuine sleeper hit. Starring Stephen Rea and Miranda Richardson as Irish terrorists, Forest Whitaker as their hostage, and Jaye Davidson as Whitaker's exotic girlfriend, The Crying Game is a haunting, humorous and shocking romantic thriller. Rarely has a motion picture undermined viewer expectations so thoroughly and enjoyably...
