Dorf is funny? only sporatically.
19 February 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

As far as Dorf goes, "Goes Fishing" is on the lower end of the series of tapes.

Maybe the idea of Dorf is still funny, but in goes fishing, the skits which make up the short, just don't add up to 45 minutes of fun (more like maybe 4.5).

Sure, seeing Dorf as a caveman and fake fish flapping around or even modern day Dorf fishing erroneously with modern technology seems like fun, but something is lost in translation.

The best bit it the Tv show commercial aspect of Dorf, but the ..IP progra is only a short bit and leads (or lends) to only a sporatically funny Dorf

Even for cabin viewing, where fishing is primarilly king, this lite entertainment doesn't add up to much.
