Eric Idle

The Rutles

8.5
The Rutles were the prefab four. They came from Liverpool and recorded some of the best rock`n`roll songs the Beatles never happened to write. And a documentary about this band was made. And who made this documentary? It was Eric Idle of Monty Python. And he was also one of the Rutles - a guy who strangely resembled Paul McCartney. This film should be watched if you`re a specialist of the Beatles, if you`re not - it`s still funny but you won`t get most of the gags. From the beginning until the very end the history of the Rutles is a hilarious piece of comedy. There`s the stage of their career when they are in Hamburg - far from home and far from talented. They atract their future manager because of their pants - how tight they are, and not because of their music. There`s a rumour that one of the members of the band has died, because on the cover of their albums he wears no pants, etc., etc. Yoko Ono in this film a simple German girl whos father had invented World War II. And you can actually see a few celebrities in this film - Mick Jagger, Paul Simon and even George Harrison of the Beatles who plays a reported interviewing Michael Palin - a further guy from the Pythons.

The Rutles 2: Can`t Buy Me Lunch

4.0
Bieži tev cilvēki saka - izvairies no draņķīgu turpinājumu skatīšanās! Cik labs lai arī nebūtu oriģināls, turpinājums būs tikai naudas kāšanas mēģinājums, kas tev sagādās šķidru vēderu un liks vilties dzīvē kopumā.

What About Dick?

6.0
Gadās, ka man uznāk vēlme skatīties totālu sviestu. Tā tomēr nav, ka es būtu caur un caurēm intelektuālis, kas dievina tikai dāņu arthouse kino un klausās tikai kvalitatīvu džezu. Pupi un alus tomēr arī ir daļa vērtību sistēmas. Un, kad ir īpaši bezsaturīgs noskaņojums, gadās skatīties kaut ko tādu kā "What About Dick?".
