That's surprising, I got the feeling that "Dress to Kill" did really well.

Ah that sucks! Dress to Kill is one my favorite comedy albums/DVDs that I've ever seen! Eddie is a hilarious guy, that's really a shame that we're going to miss out on more.

That blows! Dress To Kill was what got me into Eddie's work, and I was looking forward to this.

BTW, Eddie is doing a North American tour in the late summer / fall

I say we take the people responsible for canning this DVD and send them to Texas to get hit in the head with a brick.

Well, if anyone is desperate for it, there is a US version available of Glorious on VHS. Not the same, I know.

Got my tickets for Washington, DC. Can't wait, first time I'll be seeing him live!

Well of course - he's an executive transvestite - we should expect him to look nothing less than fabulous.

“Mais, la souris est en dessous la table, le chat est sur la chaise et le singe est… est… le singe est disparu.”

Cause the monkey would f*** off! He’d do his own thing. He was a bloody monkey! He was a cheeky monkey… and he knew my French wasn’t very good, so he’d go off and do things.

“Ah, le singe… maintenant… regarde. Il est sur une bicyclette. Il joue au banjo. Et il fume une pipe. Maintenant, il arrête… Il lit un journal, il a on journal…

Et maintenant il est dans l’autobus! Il conduit l’autobus! Et Sandra Bullock est dans l’autobus! Il y a une bombe dans l’autobus! Il faut conduire l’autobus plus de 50 kilomètres par l’heure. Et Keanu Reeves! Là! Il arrive dans la voiture! Il a pas de cheveux et Jeff Daniels est déjà mort… Regarde, il se jette dans l’autobus. Et Dennis Hopper, oh! Dennis Hopper, quel méchant!”

That was the film “Speed” in French, which in France was called “La Vitesse!” Or at least it should have been, but in fact it was called “Speed.” Yeah…


Wonder how long this quote fest thread will go on... :-)

Poor Bemblebert Humptiback.

Since there's likely a number of people who don't understand anything in this thread and they shouldn't feel left out, I offer these 3 words: Shaggy and Scooby.
