Jack Dee Live And Uncut #

Released 12/30/1999

Description: Filmed at London's Gielgud Theatre at the culmination of his 1998 tour, Jack Dee Live and Uncut puts the UK's favorite "whinger" in his element--on a scene performing stand-up comedy. Dee has presence in his orange shirt and tailored blue suit, but although he's derogatory about himself--he's a stay-at-home man, he's short, he's fat--he's also unapologetic. Dee isn't scared to throw harsh words at his audience or swear like the proverbial navvy along with an onslaught of observational humour. He doesn't go in for surrealism, one-liners or complex structural payoffs. He prefers to tackle one topics at a time, discover it, then transport on. His themes are universal rather than original but he usually brings a new perspective. Take builders… he puts himself at the centre of their Neanderthal attentions rather than women.

Heavy Weather Reviews:

Wodehouse's more eccentric characters are often notoriously hard to render on screen, as witness David Niven's bland and lifeless Bertie Wooster. In Peter O'Toole and Richard Briers, however, we finally have the excellent renditions of the Earl of Emsworth and his younger brother, the Honourable Galahad Threepwood (respectively). It's clear that both actors spent a fair amount of time reading the Wodehouse stories to receive their characters down, and it's paid off.Wodehouse frequently describes the Earl as "dreamy," "lanky," "boneless" (in more methods than one), and, when visiting his prize pig, draping himself over the fence "like an old sock" or "an unused pair of overalls." He is also forgetful, placid, and inattentive. The Hon. Galahad, on the another hand, is small, dapper, fast witted, and inordinately fond of alcohol, bar maids, and chorus girls. If possible, the Hon. Galahad is even more hard to render than the Earl. But in "Heavy Weather," O'Toole and Briers have brought them to life without making them either foolish or ridiculous. On first viewing it, I thought Briers was excellent but that O'Toole may have gone a bit overboard on the ninth Earl of Emsworth. So I re-read the Blandings Castle ebooks and, no, O'Toole had it exactly right. In short, "Heavy Weather" is a true gem that could be accessible on DVD and isn't. Petition the producers to release it and, in the meantime, test to catch it on your local PBS Masterpiece Theater. In the meantime, check out Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry as Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, other excellent pairing that is accessible on both VHS and DVD.


This is Wodehouse movie at its best. One cannot cavil at the slight alteration of sequences, etc., because the characters are so finely honed. The trouble with filming Wodehouse is that so much of his appeal is his language, and without a narrator the actors, director scriptwriters, etc. seem to lose their nerve and thing they have to mug, or at least give their audience demonstrative signs that what they're doing is supposed to be funny -- which it usually isn't. But the makers of Massive Weather knew their stuff. The ebook is closely followed. The actors are all uniformly wonderful. Peter O'Toole is King Emsworth. Richard Briers is Galahad Threepwood. And the sincere vapidity of Samuel West so perfectly captured Monty Bodkin's hero that he immediately became one of my favourite actors. This was as close to Wodehouse on movie as we're likely to get, and I would like to see the whole Blandings Saga done just this way, while O'Toole and Briers are still with us. I would suggest Rupert Everett as Psmith.


'Heavy Weather' is one of the funniest Wodehouse adaptations out there. Douglas Livingston's ver for tv surpasses even the perfect 'Jeeves and Wooster' series with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, a 4 season set that falls down badly in the last two seasons.Peter O'Toole is almost over the top as King Emsworth, the owner of the Empress of Blandings, his prize sow, but he is so convincingly dotty and his timing so excellent that any quibbles are immediately erased from memory. He is partnered by a wonderfully droll Galahad Threepwood (his brother) played by Richard Briers and their gorgon sister Connie, a hilarious Judy Parfitt, her neck muscles alone speak volumes. Samuel West is a excellent Bertie Wooster-like airhead, everytime a central Wodehouse character. There are two secondary characters who consistently steal their scenes, David Bamber's oily P.I. Pilbeam and Richard Johnson's irascible King Tilbury.I accept with other commentator here that further Blandings Castle ebooks could be dramatized with this same cast if possible. I eagerly await the release of 'Heavy Weather' on DVD and urge others who feel the same to write to Acorn Media and urge them to come up with it soon.
