Quotes

[accepting an acting award on a co-star's behalf]
David Forbert: Thank you Vanessa. Ladies and gentlemen, what a delight it is to accept this award on behalf of my close, personal... acquaintance John Daniels. John cannot unfortunately except it himself because he is in Hollywood. Starring in his first mayor film role. With Meryl Streep. I am however not in Hollywood. Not having been offered even a minor role in an eight millimeter pornographic movie. But what a delightful object it is that John has won. ...

If only they would release this on DVD!
23 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest collections of skits I've ever seen. Atkinson's bits are original and well delivered on this tape. He plays everything from the devil, to masochistic school director, to a jealous actor. There is even a little Bean in this one! I only wish someone would distribute in on DVD. Tape looses its quality after a while, and I won't be able to replace it once it goes bad. We really need to get a petition going to get this on DVD in the states. It could have been a suggested sale item on the Johnny English DVD, but oh well.
