This is the best French and Saunders DVD out there. I laughed none stop for nearly two hours. Their movie parodies are the best out there. Highly recommend it.

This DVD is wonderful. It has all the sketches I remember from the early 90's plus a huge amount of bonus footage; Star Wars Movie sketches. Alot of the humor relates to British things like a sketch making fun of a famous tights (panty ho's) commerical. Or my personal favourite, House of Idiot.
Any one who remembers the "House of Eliott" will love this one. To top that off, three of the cast from House of Eliott make an appearance (Bea, Evy and Tilly)
I watched this with my little sister and she didn't get much of it at all as it's so dated and related to current events of the time it was made.
Still worth watching though!!

"French and Saunders" are Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, two incredibly talented British comedic actresses/writers. This collection of spoofs and skits comes courtesy of the BBC.
While featuring several movie spoofs ("Misery", "Silence of the Lambs", "Thelma and Louise", etc) that is not the only genre lampooned by these gifted writers/actors.
In addition to films, they also try their hand at spoofing music videos (their take on Guns-n-Roses "November Rain", with Jennifer Saunders taking on the Axl role and Dawn French that of Slash, is absolutely hysterical), fashion models, high-brow mini-series (Upstairs Downstairs), the Royals, etc.
Of the film spoofs, the "Thelma and Louise" and "Silence of the Lambs" parodies stands out, as does a priceless take on "Star Wars:Phantom Menace". The "Star Wars" spoof is part of the BONUS selections on this DVD.
With tongue firmly in cheek, these two woman break down the fourth wall barrier and often interact out of character with each other, with uproarius results.
Among other topics, they turn their sharp wit to comment on the obvious superiority of Princess Diana over Sarah Ferguson (the DVD is dated 1994, which explains why the "Star Wars" skit is considered BONUS material) and how supermodel Jerry Hall "has it all".
The skits and lampoons here are right on the money, with detailed sets reproductions and props (many an inside joke on props are peppered throughout). Details count with any parody and are much appreciated here - From the costumes, down to the uncanny reproduction of Sigourney Weaver's voice (as portrayed by Jennifer Saunders) in the "Aliens" parody.
Jennifer Saunders has a gift with voices.

I have just become a fan of French and Saunders after having watched this dvd at a friends home. I thought they were very funny. I only wish they were on tv in the States.

I give them a high rating because I am an Anglophile and understand British slang very well. I suspect your mileage may vary, especially if you are unfamiliar with British idiom. If you subscribe to BBC America and like British comedy, pour yourself some tea (or warm beer) and sit down with this one.
British comedians, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders perform a series of sketches that are delightful send-ups of popular movies, such as "Silence of the Lambs" and "Thelma and Louise". They are supported by their usual stable of very funny people, most notably, a surprisingly butch commando in the "Alien" sketch. (Ms. Burke appears in "Absolutely Fabulous" as the nearly unintelligible Cockney go-getter who rushes into magazine meetings, throwing catch phrases at her ditzy staff and then rushing out.)
There are a few things that Americans might find puzzling, like a parody called "House of Idiot", but if you've watched PBS at all, it is not a stretch to figure out what they are doing.

The Guns and Roses segment was priceless...I will never watch "Silence of the Lambs" the same again after the humour that Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders put into it... These 2 women are extremely talented and beyond funny....
