All it's cracked up to be
18 March 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is on the 2-Disc DVD of Adventures of Robin Hood from 1938. 13 minutes of gag reel, with the occasionally added goofy sound effect to highlight something(certainly the "helmet trying out montage" isn't that interesting by itself... not that it helps much). What is the appeal of seeing people flub their lines and in general mess up takes? While some may say it's schadenfreude, I disagree. It's a reminder that we are all imperfect humans, we make mistakes, and it's OK... it's fine to laugh at that. Even the big stars could find themselves the victim of a tongue-twisting lines. Add to that the sheer energy and vitality that we see when they break character to chuckle heartily at their mistake, or apologize(man, some women were beaten down back them... then again, some of them have plenty of pep to them), and we can't help but smile. Some of the mixups are also genuinely funny. I didn't know any other films in this other than the one it was one of the special features on. They are all in black and white. There is a little moderate swearing in this. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys the reminder that we are all allowed to screw up, every once in a while. 7/10
