The Moaning of Life: DVD Review

The Moaning of Life: DVD Review


Rating: M
Released by Roadshow Home Ent

Karl Pilkington returns in another travel series that sees him tackling the big issues of life.

Well, more specifically, his attitude to the big things in life - which seems to be directly in contrast to everyone else. Having hit 40 years old, permanently bemused Brit Karl embarks on yet another travelogue that seems destined to push him outside of his comfort zone.

Taking in marriage, death, babies as well as happiness and money, Karl's heading out to various countries to get their take on various traditions and to see if they can persuade him to rethink his attitude.

As ever, though, prolonged exposure to the moaning Brit seems to win you round to his way of thinking; from marriage to running his own wedding in a laundromat on the Vegas strip, everything has a crazy, hazy logic that's constantly laugh out loud funny.

While the travelogue sense of this series lacks the cruelty of prior outings, there's a gentle comedy to this series which continues to amuse.

Extras: Deleted scenes, behind the scenes
