Editorial Reviews

Following their 2003 MTV series Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, young married couple Nick Lachey (formerly of boy band 98 Degrees) and singer-actress Jessica Simpson starred in a lively television special, The Nick and Jessica Variety Hour. A sketch-driven show somewhat reminiscent of Sonny and Cher's old primetime music and comedy series, Nick and Jessica is strong on guest stars and mutual teasing between the attractive hosts. Highlights include Simpson's funny duet with Jewel, in which the former mimics the game singer-songwriter's stylized vocal on "Who Will Save Your Soul." (Lachey's duet with Kit the talking car from the 1980s Knight Rider show is a little less appealing--comically so.) Simpson also shines in a great bit in which she revisits, rather obnoxiously, her Mousketeer days with little Britney, Christina, and Justin, while Kermit and Miss Piggy turn up for a go at "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." --Tom Keogh

2.0 out of 5 stars It looks too '70s and 1983-like January 13, 2005
By Preston
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson have a few good moments in the Nick and Jessica Variety Hour. But the show looks too '70s in its premise, too Donny and Marie-ish in some parts and Sonny and Cher-in some others. Lachey's performance with Babyface is nice. How come Babyface didn't produce Nick's entire solo album instead of the batch of people Nick went to that caused Soul-O to flop? He would have given him some smooth stuff to sing to. But having Mr. T and Johnny Bench and Kenny Rogers makes the show look, sadly, too 1983-ish. How come they couldn't get somebody current to perform on it, say Maroon 5 or Kanye West, who were both hot last April? They wanted to bring back the variety show format, but it's very hard to do it in an Internet age. And Jessica isn't all that good on this show. I'd rather hear her music and albums instead. They need to bring new things to the format if they're going to make another show. For now, Lachey and Simpson would be better off doing their solo albums than wasteful junk like this!

This has been arguably the most enjoyable import i have got this year.

Over here in Australia we have just barely started seeing the 2nd series of NewlyWeds on free-to-air tv here, so naturally i snapped up this 'smile time' variey hour excitedly.

But what shocked me was that it was really funny.

A prime example was when Nick decided to introduce his favourite Baseball playing friend.

'Oh Dear' I thought aloud.

But luckily it turned to a classic case of audience abuse, and everyone can enjoy that.

Jessica working at an 'ole style Saloon with the power to read dirty thoughts which results in Nick all wet...

10 Seconds Of Awkwardness with Mr T was another example of irreverence that i enjoyed....

But what topped it off was the music. The songs were delightful.

Oh, and Jess Pole Vaulting...

So if you havent seen it, or heard of it (Australian people)

buy it now and laugh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nick and Jessica variety hour October 28, 2008
It was dumb. It was not what I thought it would be. No acting skills on Jessica's part. It was all about Jessica not too much of Nick. Whoever wrote the script, didn't do a good job.

2.0 out of 5 stars Embarressing Part 2 December 10, 2005
What a waste of money. Waste of space. Waste of time. I'm a fan of both Nick and Jess but you'd be ashamed to own this. Not worth a dime.

2.0 out of 5 stars Embarrasing October 13, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whilst I do like Jessica and Nick, (I was a fan of Jessica since "I'm gonna love you forever" and I always liked 98degrees), this is embarrasing.

On Newlyweds, I think she's actually funny. I love the show and I don't see the negatives that people talk about. This however was different. I can't beleive they need the money, so Jessica and Nick - DON"T DO THIS AGAIN. I couldn't believe they did such stupid rubbish and kept a straight face. It's fine to do songs along with other famous singers, but don't sing with a car, and don't do pole-vaulting across the stage and then act high at other times.

Yes there are some good moments in this, but overall,? I was cringing considerably.

4.0 out of 5 stars funny... the new sonny and cher.... January 27, 2005
nick and jessica are a beautiful couple... now with their recent tabloids about them on the verge to splitting is non-sense... they are a power couple...

this varitey hour was sooo friggin funny. jessica is a decent actress.

the funniest scene was when jessica was trying to be in the MICKEY MOUSE CLUB and they had the younger britney, christina and justin in it trying to get crunk with the gal...OHHH and the pole vaulting.... jessica you know that was wrong but that was another funny moment....

they had a bunch of singing scenes including the jewel and jessica duet 'who will save your soul', nick and babyface and the at the time hit 'take my breathe away'...

nick is a funny cat he knows how to keep his gal in the spotlight. he does not try to hog it because he knows that the people really want to see jessica... so i commend him for that.

in other words this is funny and i really hope they do another one real soon... ohh they did the christmas one.... but do another one soon...
