4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, but I admit may be expensive November 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Always Sunny and would definitely reckomend(Charlie spelling) this DVD. Yes, it is expensive. I was lucky enough to get it discounted with Seasons 1-4 on the deal of the day(Thanks Amazon!) so it didn't really effect me. The added violence and cursing definitely made me wish every episode could have it! They use the cursing efficiently and always to great effect. If you like Always Sunny you can't really go wrong with this DVD. I was excited to see Mac and Charlie paired together again(Lately the dynamic has been Frank/Charlie and Mac/Dennis) for some great, hilarious moments. Loved it and think you will love it too!

2.0 out of 5 stars I think I know what happened here... December 29, 2009
I am a fan of Always Sunny and own all the seasons on DVD. I am NOT a hater. This DVD is basically a double episode of Always Sunny with a Christmas theme. There are some funny bits, but it is not an outstanding episode. DVD Extras are weak and not worth the time.

What I think happened is this: The Always Sunny gang wanted to make a Christmas episode for broadcast, but when the suits saw this episode they balked and said "no way" to airing it. I mean, this thing pushes more boundaries than ever! So the gang added some minimal dvd extras (very minimal) and packaged it for a DVD release. (Possibly this was prompted by the suits at the network to recoup production costs, but maybe not.) Anyway it is an attempted cash grab and not worth the $20.

The clay-mation scene near the end was a GREAT idea, but I feel, a missed opportunity. It started well, but they went for gross and violent instead of just being Always Sunny. It was the one part I was really hoping to see, but it turned out to be a let down, and not funny at all.

The DVD Extras are s few deleted scenes with Mac and Charlie as kids, and a "Sing-a-Long With Always Sunny" which is HORRIBLE. They shot the 'Sing-a-Long' segment with odd lenses and tried to make it look like a Stephen King Horror movie, complete with odd sound effects. EPIC FAIL! Not funny, or even entertaining. Always Sunny is not about a nunch of serial killers! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

As the actual episode goes it is pretty good, but not great. There are some "Christmas Past" flashbacks that allow the viewer to possibly understand why all these people are so damaged. Dee and Dennis do not have well written parts in this one, It's mostly Mac and Charlie with some decent Frank bits thrown in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular November 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There seems to be two main groups of people giving this reviews - people who haven't seen it, but love the show, so they give it a 5, and people who hate the price, so they give it a 1. Ignore them both.

I just got this in the mail today, watched it, it's hilarious, as good as any episode. It's 40 minutes, the length of two episodes. The ending is a little weak, the rest is spectacular. That's really all there is to it. If you're willing to pay a standard DVD price for two episodes, go for it, I promise you won't be disappointed. If you don't think it's worth it, no one's twisting your arm, you have no right to complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific fun September 28, 2011
By W. Cely
A wonderful xmas neo-classic if you love absurdist, abusive humor. No one is going to be interested in this title if they aren't already a fan of the show. It's certainly up there with some of their better scripts as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Always FUNNY!!! December 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The gangs take on Christmas is fantastic! This is a fairly polarizing show and people either love it or hate it. This is a must-buy for fans of the show. Nice to have more foul language and nudity than they could get away with on cable. It is as long as 2 episodes and bonus childhood flashbacks are great. My only complaints are a lack of commentary and the bonus Christmas sing-along, which is just stupid and creepy. Still money well spent!

3.0 out of 5 stars Priced to take advantage of fans, unfortunately November 18, 2009
I just downloaded this for $10 last night and watched it. It has some awesome moments, mostly with Frank and Charlie, and is certainly more explicit. Overall, though, it sort of places in the middle of the pack when compared to all of Sunny's episodes. I think very few viewers are going to say this is their favorite ep.

More important, there is no way in the world, no way at all, that it's worth even $10. Just comparing the list price of the Season 4 DVD set, this special is worth less than $8 if you count it as two episodes.

I love the show. I bought a D*ck Towel for a friend! Clearly I am willing to give these guys money. But in this case the pricing of this just reeks of make-a-quick-buck greed from FX. You should definitely try to watch it, but borrow a friend's copy or rent a digital version online or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic November 9, 2009
This is an instant classic. I know price is an issue with a lot of other reviewers, but I have only watches this, I did not buy a copy. This christmas special is longer than a regular episode, fully uncensored (more swearing & blood), and completely hilarious as you take a look into the various traditions practiced by the gang around christmas time and learn their dark secrets from christmases past...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the funniest shows on television. Taking bits and pieces from news headlines, the crew on Philadelphia always makes shows that are funny while also fitting in with the news zeitgeist. As always, I'm a big fan of film and TV that fits in with what's going on today and has something to say about modern social/political moors. I can't say that It's Always Sunny has something to necessarily say regarding today's climate, but it is always funny and entertaining.

Charlie and Mac realize that the Christmases they've had in the past weren't true Christmas traditions, in turn they try to make their pasts right. Dennis and Dee are tired of Frank buying Christmas presents they wanted for himself, and find his old partner, Eugene, that he cheated out of millions of dollars to help show Frank that he's a bad man and needs to shape up or he will die alone.

A Very Sunny Christmas is no exception. Directed by Fred Savage (for those of you who know the name, yes it's who you think it is; for the rest of you it's Kevin from The Wonder Years) A Very Sunny Christmas fits right along with anything in the Philadelphia catalogue. It's groundbreaking, it pushes the envelope, and it's very funny. I can't point out the news articles they used for this, but because of the fact that they don't just use national news (brilliant!) at times the show is at times hard to determine where they got news from. I choose not to dock the crew for this because of the fact that the show is always funny, and, here, reminds us of how some people have it, or don't have it, at Christmas. It's always important for us to remember that not everyone has it as good as us at Christmas, and that's something that Sunny tries to show us in this series, in a very funny way.

Will this be included in Season 5 DVD?
It'll be interesting if this DOES get added to the Season 5 set. I, personally, hope it doesn't, since I just bought it today!
