Vicar of Dibley, The: The Immaculate Collection (DVD)
The winner of an International Emmy(R) Award for Best Comedy Program, The Vicar of Dibley is one of the most popular series ever produced by the BBC. It boasts the brilliant comic writing of Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Bridget Jones's Diary) and a gifted ensemble cast led by Dawn French of the hilarious comedy duo, French and Saunders. The sleepy village of Dibley was blindsided back in 1994 by the arrival of its new vicar -- who had the audacity to be a woman! Over the twelve ensuing years -- with the help of a sharp wit, a double dose of double entendre and a healthy supply of chocolate -- she gradually won the hearts of even the crustiest of the town's eccentric inhabitants. This collection contains every episode ever created of this brilliant comedy series, and it promises to warm your heart, while keeping you in fits of hysteria along the way!]]>

The scenario is about a Rosie O'Donnell lookalike who become the vicar of a Church of England church in a small conservative British town, and her liberal views inevitably come into conflict with those of her parishioners. The episode we saw had her attempt to have stuffed animals made to sell at a fundraiser, but they turned out to be terrible. Then she hears about a parishioner who has a relative named "Reginald Dwight"...and the vicar and everyone else assumes that it is Elton John, so the town makes an arrangement for an Elton John concert.
One problem...the Reginald Dwight in question is NOT Elton John after all, but some little wizened old man. Fortunately, the vicar happens to find a different celebrity to give the concert, and she bribes her by promising that she can worship the Devil without fear of going to Hell, and everything ends happily.
This sort of thing might have been hilarious in Britain, but it just didn't succeed here. Some things just don't work in translation.
