Fans of blue-collar/redneck humour are in for a treat here. Comics Ron White, Larry theCable Guy, Bill Engvall and Jeff Foxworthy (in that order) perform their routines to a largeconcert hall audience, then team up for a comedy jam. Whether the humour works for you willdepend on your personal taste, of course, but there is some pretty funny material here.
Dolby 5.1 Surround is arguably overkill for a stand-up routine. Hell, mono would get the jo…done. But the effect of the surround is pretty strong. The effect that winds up coming out of thespeakers is the audience, so you very much have the feeling of being one of the spectators. Loudthough the laughs and applause are, though, they do not overwhelm this DVD’s main reason forbeing: the monologues. These come through with perfect clarity.
The picture has been reformatted to fullscreen, but I can’t honestly complain about that inthis instance. Widescreen compositions are not the issue when we’re just watching a comic dohis stuff, often without moving very much. The colours in the opening fishing-on-the-lake introare a bit drab, but are strong enough, with equally strong contrasts, in the concert footage. Nograin in the actual show either. The picture is very sharp. You can see every sweaty pore.
The menu’s main page is scored, but there are no extras.
A stripped-to-the-bones release, but why the hell would you want a commentary on a stand-up concert movie anyway?
