Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Matt Lucas and David Walliams, the writer-performers behind the BBC's Little Britain, take on the inconveniences of air travel in this reality-style sitcom. The satire centers on three companies: FlyLo, Our Lady Air, and Great British Air. As a posh narrator (Rome's Lindsay Duncan) describes the action on the ground and in the skies, the duo play 16 recurring characters of both genders and various races, from a put-upon passenger liaison to an overly chatty airline steward, all of whom do their best to irritate ordinary travelers. With the aid of hairpieces, prosthetic devices, and their own well-honed sketch-comedy skills, Lucas and Walliams disappear into their roles--even West Indian coffee seller Precious and Mediterranean airline owner Omar. As in HBO's Extras, a few celebrities put in appearances as well, among them David Schwimmer, Anna Friel (in a bald cap), and Harry Potter's Rupert Grint. Throughout the six-episode season, stand-alone bits alternate with ongoing story lines, like the competition between catty FlyLo agents Melody and Keeley to become check-in manager, but not everything works. Bickering husband-and-wife pilots Simon and Jackie and slow-witted paparazzi Mickey and Buster seem more pathetic than amusing, but other individuals--Lucas and Walliams portray over 40--provide greater entertainment value. Extra features include promos, a photo gallery, and an insightful interview in which Lucas and Walliams talk about their 20-year relationship, their writing process, and their reasons for pulling the plug on Little Britain and starting over again with something different. As Walliams explains, "I really felt it had to be a new chapter." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

From flight crew to check-in, from paparazzi to passengers, and from catering staff to immigration, Matt Lucas and David Walliams take a side-splitting view of Britain's busiest airport and the people who work in and pass through it every day. Characters include scandal-prone charmer Omar Baba, the owner of FlyLo, Britain's eighth favorite low cost airline, Taaj, who is more interested in whether the documentary crew are filming in 3D than he is in doing the job, the perky check-in staff Melody and Keeley, Precious Little - a jolly, busty West Indian lady who works at the coffee kiosk, Ian Foot - the patriotic Chief Immigration Officer, whose keen eye for illegal foreigners is only tempered by his lack of geographical knowledge - "There's no such country as Liberia" - and more!

Format:DVD
Anyone who has ever seen "Little Britain" (in any of its various incarnations) know that its creators and principle performers Matt Lucas and David Walliams just might be certifiably insane. Of course, I mean that as the highest compliment possible! The pair have worked together in numerous British TV projects through the years, but will always be ingrained in my psyche for "Little Britain." They display a gift for creating wacky (and surprisingly identifiable characters) and then setting them loose on the world in a sketch comedy format. Let's be honest. "Come Fly With Me" doesn't break much new ground in relationship to their other comedy successes, but it does give them another venue for dressing up and acting a fool. The target this time is a fairly easy one. The scenario plays out like a reality TV show is shooting various personalities that work in and around a major airport. If you've ever seen the A&E hit show "Airline," this feels like a slightly more absurd version of that show.

Among the primary characters that recur within the six brief episodes, there is a good cross section of the airport scene. From apathetic baggage handlers, to rival ticket girls, to a married pilot team, to a self-serving guest relations specialist, to an ambitious flight attendant, to a couple of frequent passengers, to paparazzi--Lucas and Walliams perfect a variety of nutjobs and pander to every cliche and stereotype imaginable. Having worked in an airport environment for a number of years, I'd like to say that the satire is wildly exaggerated--but certain stereotypes exist for a reason! Not every character was as interesting as every other, but it's a matter of taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Side splitting funny October 2, 2012
By NYNY212
Verified Purchase
I bought the entire first and only season of Come Fly With Me on Amazon. It's a comedy show that takes place mainly at the airport.
I never intended on watching all 6 episodes in one night but that is exactly what I did. I just couldn't stop watching.
I think David Walliams and Matt Lucas are extremely talented in how they are able to portray so many different characters. I know they've also done the same in Little Britain (another one of my fave shows), but that is what makes them and their work so special.
Each episode of Come Fly With Me is about 25 minutes long and throughout the six episodes, you get to see the same characters. The situations are so unrealistic that it's really funny.
I appreciated some characters more than others (such as the photographers and the married couple--their story line got a bit stale after a while), but this is still a very, very funny show.
Since watching all 6 episodes, I found myself returning to bits of certain episodes whenever I am feeling blah or had a rough day. It is a charming pick me up.
I highly recommend it and look forward to Season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come Fly With Me-Hilarious April 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Anyone who enjoyed the work of of David Walliams and Matt Lucas on their previous shows will enjoy this DVD. It is a small investment to get all 6 episodes. This is like a reality type show of different characters working in an airport. If you enjoyed Little Britain or Little Britain USA you will enjoy this show. The special features on the DVD were slightly dissappointing compared to other dvds. Little Britain USA for example had commentary of each episode, and I was slightly dissappointed to find out that David and Matt had not done commmentary over the two disc, 6 episodes that is Come Fly With Me. Any more a new movie costs about the same so even low on special features it is still a deal!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall of the couch hilarious December 21, 2013
By S. Cruz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is so unfortunate that this English show only ran 2 seasons. It is beyond funny! It is laugh out loud at unexpected times belly roll funny! If you like big gut laughs - you will love this! If you are one of those that has an issue with any humor about stereotypes, then this isn't for you. If you can sit back and just enjoy the amazing talent, script, and actor transformations and the numerous and abundant characters played by just 2 English actors. I highly, highly recommend. These guys are amazing! I watch this over and over and I never stop laughing. I know there are only 5 stars - but I give this 6.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not "Region Free" October 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
...Or so states the description. Being the owner of several blu ray players (Sony, toshiba etc) this will not play on any of them. All firmware has been updated so that is not an issue. Although I think this show is hilliarious, and was saddened to hear it did not make it beyond the first season , I am even more disappointed that this release is truly not region free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it. July 17, 2012
By MLP
Format:DVD
I think the characters and scenarios are very clever and very, very funny. The more I watch it, the more I like it. Matt Lucas and David Walliams are two of England's living treasures. Very disappointed there will be no more of this series.
