was very happy dvd some of the funniest people all on one dvd anyone who lives jerry lewis or lee evans must should and need to see this
strange, but enjoyable!
There are a fair number of familar faces in this film, Jerry Lewis being one of the biggest.....but it's when I saw the combination of said actor, with Lee Evans, Oliver Platt, Oliver Reed, (the list goes on)you have to stop and ponder for a mo......that's one hell of line up! (I am biased, happen to be a big Lee Evans and Jerry Lewis fan). The plot itself is not particularly complicated, the acting from all involved is not overtly top notch in parts, but overall it is a good watch with a soundtrack that does perk the ears on and off. One thing to watch out for, which somewhat captivated me, is the part Lee Evans plays - wow, the guy can pull of being 'troubled', fairly well! If you've not seen the film, to say anymore may well give too much away, so I'll just leave this point with the thought that in having seen this film couple of times, it's not hard to see why a talent like Lee Evans is still fighting fit today. Is a shame to see Jerry Lewis has got so old!! Daft thing to say I know, but most of my memories of him are in due with Dean Martin, which is, lets be honest, a lifetime of acting ago. Still, he is a good watch and fits in well with the character he plays. As with any other film, there could have been tweeks here and there to really make it shine, but like I said, is a good overall piece which is just light hearted fun.Read full review
Funny Bones - What?
I can't decide if "Funny Bones" is supposed to be a comedy, drama, suspence movie, what? Anyways, this film is about a comedian who returns to his hometown of Blackpool, England, to find new material for his failing acts. While, I quite enjoyed this film, i thought, "Why did they have to add those tragic, dramatic scenes in with all the comedy!?" If ya enjoy Agood laugh, "Funny Bones" is deffo the film to watch. I give "Funny Bones" 8 out of 10. See it, and rate it for yaself!
