5.0 out of 5 stars Soccer, Sociology and Humor Oct. 14 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like all three of these things... Soccer, Sociology and Humor... so granted to say I enjoyed watching this A-Z documentary about soccer. Good soccer videos clips and great interviews too with many legends of the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed June 23 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We're great fans of football (soccer) and of John Cleese with his many characters... this one was a bomb for the sports side and the writing... just not funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally Funny Love Letter To Football From Two Amazing Sketch Comedians Sept. 5 2009
By Throatwobbler Mangrove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
John Cleese and Tom Konkle are two generations of sketch comedians cut from the same cloth. Cleese is legendary and Konkle is a rising star whose has drawn comparisons to Cleese along the way. Interestingly Konkle falls comfortably into the Michael Palin mode offering support and comedy to compliment Cleese's style rather than be too similar to it. The writing on the show is exceptional as are the interviews with a who's who of the football world. (soccer in America) The A-Z format for the sketches creates a wonderfully, surreal and silly flow and weaves together some very dissimilar and high -minded concepts about the game. Watch if you love football and watch if you want to see two funny, talented comedians working together with comic ease.

Format:DVD
Though it would be very funny, but it was not Monty-ish. Great soccer. I would recommend it. Still love Cleese!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Soccer with John Cleese Dec 23 2012

Deeply interesting to soccer fans and funny. Loved the sidekick foil to cleese. His facial expressions almost outdid Cleese, I thought.
1.0 out of 5 stars My kids hated it. Jan. 11 2014

Who cares what politicians and movie actors think of soccer. I was hoping to see more soccer highlights with John Cleese commenting but it was mostly interviews.
3.0 out of 5 stars Occasionally amusing, somewhat informative Oct. 15 2013
By A. Oltsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's a pleasant DVD, mildly amusing, with some- usually grainy- footage that illustrates points being made.Occasionally the footage is beautifully illustrative of an observation, but not often enough.There is never a 'studied' review of something that's just been used as "example" footage, so if you're not already knowledgeable you might well miss what the example was supposed to show you. I 'froze' the playing a few times so's to indicate what the footage was supposed to be demonstrating, for a non-fan who watched it with me. Several things could have used some teaching, however lightly delivered, so the point wouldn't be so murky. Other parts stand all right without elaboration. I enjoyed it well enough but couldn't possibly give 4 stars. It's too lightweight for that- not funny or clever enough, not revealing or educational enough.. The idea of assigning a letter of the alphabet for each football topic to be covered is a good way to make structure. The humor is absolutely not at Python level, and the set-up of Cleese's character being abusive to the other bloke is rather tired out before it starts.
