PET SHOP BOYS VIDEO ARCHIVES VOLUME III
Pet Shop Boys It Couldn’t Happen Here 1988 DVD
(Available in either Region 1 or 2)
This film is a incredible journey across England as Pet Shop Boys Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe travel to their most unusual engagement ever. A comic, bizarre film. The scene where Barbara Windsor has a huge plate of fried eggs thrown at her by Chris Lowe is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen! The look of horror and surprise on her egg-strewn face is hilarious.
Joss Ackland (oldish cool actor with diplomatic immunity off the Lethal Weapon film) plays a fantastic part as he sits in the back of a taxi with Neil and Chris in the front and Joss is acting bizzarely, putting on a very strange voice and quoting strange poetry and ramblings, it really is full of various actors/actresses cameo appearances, so much so, it’ll keep you entertained from start to finish.
If you like the Pet Shop Boys a lot and their music, then you’ll love this film. Most of the music in it is from the 80’s which I personally feel was their best recording time as artists. There are some very moving, poignant scenes in the film and matched with the music it will have you alternating between tapping your feet, to crying with laughter to feeling sad. If you’re a very big fan of the PSB’s then you’ll treasure this film and will watch it over and over again, you will see different things each time you watch it!!
