Enjoyed it to the last bit
27 July 2002 | by jack-231See all my reviews

Funny and informative. I never thought the subject of human face could be stretched into four 50-minute episodes. But it can, easily as it seems. I learned a lot and laughed a lot as well. And this Elisabeth Hurley, well, she has a face I could look at for hours and hours and never get tired of it. John Cleese was able to use his comedy talent and proved that he can be a great host.
