Product Description

Bill Maher: Victory Begins at Home (DVD)

Amazon.com

Common sense and comedy make excellent bedfellows in Victory Begins at Home, comedian Bill Maher's scathing one-hour show taped on Broadway and first broadcast on HBO in July 2003. "Comedian" seems hardly adequate in defining Maher, who functions as political analyst, voice of conscience, court jester, social critic, and tireless advocate of decency, honesty, and, yes, even patriotism (unless you're a staunch conservative, in which case Maher's an insufferable moron, but that's your problem, not his). Indeed, Victory will ultimately serve as a time-capsule summary of political, personal, and religious absurdity in the age of George W. Bush, Middle East turmoil, and rampant terrorism, and after honing his edge on TV's late, great Politically Incorrect, who better than Maher to comment on the madness? Take this, for example: "The true axis of evil in America is the genius of our marketing combined with the stupidity of our people." Which is to say, Maher's a fearless equal-opportunity offender, and nobody gets off the hook easily. Whether he's excoriating the hypocrisy of politicians and priests, illegal vs. prescription drugs, our "feminized" society, or the good reason you should never buy diamonds, Maher's is a voice of angry, caring reason, and we're better off with him (and his profanely provocative freedom of speech) than without him. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

The show is great; Bill really gets you thinking and laughing.

On Victory Begins At Home he is more Democrat then Republican, but he openly sides with neither.
Wade Tomlin
Church, religion, brainwashing, all have the same thing in common.

Format: DVD
Bill Maher has been one of the best comedians since back in his old Saturday Night Live heyday, but it's with Politically Incorrect and later with HBO's show, it really has sharpened his skills to slash through the hypocrisy, kills the spin-doctors with something you rarely see these days - common sense! Bill wears many hats, political analyst, a formidable debater, social conscious for the political arena, religion and the world situation. You may not always agree with him, but then maybe that is not Bill's aim. He provokes people to think, to look beyond the garbage spewed by media grabbers.

Thanks goodness for Bill's caring, his determination not to let us all get snowed under by hyperbole, rhetoric and flood of misinformation, and making us laugh while doing it.

I don't always agree with what Bill Maher says, but I'm one of those people who is always glad he says it. But I found myself agreeing with a lot more of what he says in this show than the type of things he said on Politically Incorrect. And his new show on HBO seems to be more on the mark as well. Maybe it's the freedom that comes with HBO and not working for Disney. Whatever your political slant, you'd have to be pretty uptight about your beliefs to not laugh at this special. With Dennis Miller turning into a bizarre infomercial for the Republican Party, Bill is really the only comedian (save maybe George Carlin) doing this kind of provacative material. And I say this as a registered Republican, too.

The controversial Maher is a voice of reason in a nation obsessed with terrorists, religious dogma, political partisanship, and male-female roles. The comedian tackles these and other hot topics in the way that only the former host of "Politically Incorrect" could.
I don't think a certain Mr. Bush would find much to laugh about in Maher's routines, but the rest of us should find some food for thought, especially in light of the current anti-American climate in much of the world.

I was disappointed with Bill's "I'm Swiss" DVD, but here, he is dead on. The pacing of the show is great and Bill doesn't hold back on any subject. He makes great points not just about politics, but about all kinds of topics. Unlike his performance on the "I'm Swiss" show, Bill seems really out for blood. And on Victory Begins at Home, he is confident with his material without being smug. Anyone who has issues with President Bush will want to watch this. And it's a must for Bill Maher fans. It's the best stand-up I've seen Bill do. And for those who can't get enough of him at his best, there's a good Q and A session, where some very brave people ask the prickly Maher to say a bit more.

Every few years a social commentator comes along and not only has a strong arguement, but has an arguement that makes sense. Bill Maher is that man. Through his totally hilarious opinions on everything from religious extremists to America's wasteful habits, Bill Maher leaves no one safe from his sharp tongue and quick wit. Maher is a master of words and a beacon of light through the fog of today's media and political lies. AND HE'S FUNNY!!! I bought this thinking it was going to be more of a lecture, but boy was I wrong. This DVD has the perfect combo of jokes and facts to keep you laughing and keep you thinking. A must have for anyone, period.

I had never watched his cable show, and never understood all the fuss about Bill Maher, but, now I do! Maher is an astute, and exceedingly witty social commentator. Glad I borrowed this DVD from a friend. I'm going to buy my own copy now.

Format: DVD
Besides watching this DVD, I also went to this show (there were about 20 of them with slight variations) and I must say that he is very provacotive, thought provoking and humorous. Perhaps there were a few segments where he went over the board with cursing, but nonetheless it was almost necessary to insert into the show to depict a point.
It's obvious that he has a liberal agenda, like myself, but unlike most left and right wingers who fall into those categories by a mere conviction from media and the like, Bill explores the topics with careful analysis and satisfactorily provides reasons for being a liberal. He also clears up the myth that "liberal" is a negative term, which is true if one is to look it up.
I gave it 4 stars, not because he wasn't good - in fact he was brilliant - but because I felt he should have included more topics and more humor into the show. However, I like his insensitivity to religion and catholic church as well as his promotion of racial profiling in the times of war if we are to win it. He also explores the war in Iraq, oil, SUV's and sale of diamonds.
All in all, good work and a clear voice of reason!
