The Politically Incorrect Guide to Grown Ups
I like Nigel Latta and have immensely enjoyed his previous Politically Incorrect DVDs, dealing with kids and teens. This time however Latta delves into the complexities of being a grown up, with such things as careers, money, growing old and bad haircuts. The show as a whole stays lively with a combination of that old Latta humour and funny skits and animations. Unfortunately however, some of the episodes just seem to fall flat, and the series seems to struggle to justify it’s existence from time to time.
The big disappointment however is that this ISN’T a ‘Politically Incorrect Guide.’ Rather it’s blatantly Politically Correct. There is nothing here that is likely to offend anyone, and Latta pretty much does nothing but point out the obvious whilst doing a Mr Bean routine.
If you’re a Nigel Latta fan you’re going to enjoy the DVD, you just won’t be blown away by it, you won’t be rolling on the floor in fits of laughter, and you probably won’t learn anything new from it.
