Kids in the Hall: Same Guys, New Dresses


Kids in the Hall: Same Guys, New Dresses Review

I'm an old Kids in the Hall fan from way back, but this collection of behind-the-scenes vignettes from the comedy troupe's 1999-2000 live tour is hit-and-miss, which is pretty much the same thing I thought about their 1996 non-documentary movie Brian Candy.

Some of the on-stage moments are priceless (during "Jesus 2000": "So what if my ass gets itchy and I'm too busy to worship!?") as are some of the off-stage bits (Scott Thompson's attempt to get his Sony Aibo to go to sleep "because he has this responsibility"). But are you interested in the street preachers or singing beggars outside the show? Are you interested in five minutes about why their equipment is delayed at one show? Do you care whether the guys decide to take a bus from city to city instead of a plane? They sure do talk about it for a long time...

The DVD includes a commentary track from the cast along with odd little bits from Mike Myers (his name spelled "Meyers" here), Andy Richter, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, and Jason Priestley. Jason Priestley? That's comedy, people!
