Can't wait for his next project, 'Angry Little Men'!
E. Brown
Love Chris Lilley's brand of humor, it's so amazing to me how Chris Lilley always manages to move me with all of the different characters he plays.
Amy Baczkowski
I was scared at first because i was not sure it would work on my dvd player but if you just buy the USA one region 1 it works perfect.

This is one of the funniest things I've ever watched. I loved Summer Heights High and heard about We Can Be Heroes from an Australian friend. I couldn't stop watching. Chris is absolutely brilliant as Ricky Wong and Pat Mullins. His mannerisms and speech patterns are perfection. I can't wait to see his next project.

If you are a fan of the original Australian Kath & Kim, The Games, or the original The Office, you should love this series! It's a mockumentary that deals with five Aussies as they strive to be awarded "Australian of the Year". In America, it was briefly seen on Sundance Channel as "The Nominees" a couple year ago. It's subtle, brilliant humor that gets funnier as you get to know the characters more and more. And dare I say, you may shed a tear by the end! Highest recommendation!

One important note, the box and disc say "PAL", but I was able to play this just fine on my non-modified American Xbox360. Haven't tried a normal DVD player.

We Can Be Heroes is another great series from Chris Lilley. Personally, I found it a bit short, being only 6 episodes long. Though I liked Angry Boys better, We Can Be Heroes was a good way to spend an afternoon. The item shipped ridiculously quickly; I received it 3 days after placing my order. I played it on my MacBook, and had no issues watching the DVD. After I got it, I must admit I was a tad disappointed, only because the series was so short and I spent nearly $50 on it. I would have been okay paying $25 for it, but after watching it I am definitely dissatisfied with the price I paid for it.

Australian Chris Lilley's six characters- Phil Olivetti (a retired policeman who flaunts the fact he saved 9 children from a jumping castle disaster), Ricky Wong (young Chinese physics phd student who really wants to be an actor), Ja'mie King (spoiled private high school girl), Pat Mullins (first female competitive rolling champion with a leg disability), and Daniel Sims (first human to donate his ear drum to his nearly deaf twin brother who Lilley also showcases as Nathan Sims) all set the stage for 3 hours of awkward, hysterical, painful, heart wrenching, and again, hysterical scenarios. But what is most attractive and captivating about 'We Can Be Heroes' is Lilley's ability to be simultaneously convincing as these people and at the same time, self-deprecating through the characters' personal interviews and interactions with the supporting cast. Definitely recommend for Summer Heights High fans and the Office (British and American). And don't worry- The Special Edition DVD labeled "Region 0" or "Region: All" works on most American DVD players.

Can't wait for his next project, 'Angry Little Men'!

I absolutely loved it. If you loved Summer Heights High, you can experience even more of Chris Lilley's brilliance in "We Can Be Heroes". How he manages to bring six different charactes to life, is genuis.....

I saw this show a number of years back when it was a miniseries on the Sundance Channel in the United States. I fell in love. For years, I searched for the DVDs so I could force my friends to watch it. I have forced about ten people to watch it now: half of whom demanded that we watch every episode ASAP, and the other half liked it a lot but didn't have time for a Chris Lilley Marathon.

If you like dry humor and get bored with television shows after ten episodes or so, then you might like this. I know I do!

I was expecting a lot more fun, raw humor. Instead after watching two shows, we will just have to bear with the rest. Chris Lilley is great and Angry Boys is great. Watch that first and his later work. Maybe we will enjoy the later shows in this series if we get to them.
