Quotes

Ellen DeGeneres: We're doin all these things so we can squeeze things together so we can save time, and I don't know about you, but I don't have anymore time, I have less time. But let's just say we could save up a whole chunk of time and set it aside, you know what we'd do with it? Nothing. Nothing at all. Isn't that the point, to be able to do nothing at all? We're not guaranteed that later-on chunk of time, all we have is here and now, and that's why procrastination feels so right. Procrastination is not the...

Did We Watch the Same Movie?
16 January 2008 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

In sharp contrast to most reviews here, the "Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now" disc that I rented was marginally funny at best. While Ellen's general style is right in the vein of good comedy, her observations in this performance just lack an edge... maybe an absurdity or exaggeration that makes all the difference between you or me talking about, say, airport security shenanigans and a professional comedian addressing the same subject. This was no funnier than discussing the same topics with regular people--a few good laughs, but that's about it. Oftentimes she'd make an observation and I would wait expectantly for the joke that puts it in hilarious perspective, only to find her moving along to the next lukewarm observation. Hopefully her other material is of better caliber.

As a health warning, if you thought this DVD was truly hilarious, you may want to stay away from comics like Bill Hicks, Eddie Izzard, Richard Pryor, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedburg or countless others who might be funny enough to actually kill you.
