The Baby Juice Express DVD Review

Hop To

by AVForums Apr 1, 2004

    SRP: £12.99

    Picture

    It's in colour and I saw no signs of edge enhancement - that's about as good as it gets for the anamorphically-enhanced image. The picture is bland, soft and eminently average-looking with too much video noise for a modern DVD release.

    Sound

    The preview copy I have for reviewing includes a Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track only - although Universal's release proper may have Dolby 5.1 when the DVD is finally released on the 19th of April. As can no doubt be expected Pro Logic surround cannot hope to compete with a fully discrete 5.1 experience and the audio track included here sounds severely hemmed in. That said, once Mr. Bugner starts pulling his panto faces it's all too easy to forget sound quality. Have I said I think this movie is dire?

    Extras

    Interestingly, if you haven't already run screaming from your house 20 minutes into the film, watching the Making Of feature certainly improves one's memory of the movie experience! Suddenly I felt a huge weight lifted from my eyelids - the guys, and gals, undoubtedly had a blast making Baby Juice Express. And If you dare, go on - I double dare you, to watch the movie a second time this enjoyment is reinforced in the audio commentary featuring director, and Black Belt in Karate/former ISKA Kick Boxing Champion, Michael Hurst, Nick Moran and John Stewart.Why, oh why, couldn't you guys have made BJE as funny as the supplemental features? Perhaps you'll hit the mark in BJE 2?!

    Verdict

    First things first - just in case word gets back to either Mr. Bugnor or Mr. Hurst - I'm terribly sorry if my review has hurt your feelings... please to not come looking for me.

    Every movie tends to have something going for it and even Baby Juice Express is no exception. That something is actress Ruth Jones, whose Welsh Army Bloke wife character did make me laugh - and it was the only time I laughed throughout the entire movie! Good on yer, luv.

    My lasting impression of this movie? It's bad, real bad. So bad, in fact, that you should see this movie so that you can really enjoy how bad it is. If Joe Bugnor weren't such a fearful guy in real life I would have no qualms in saying how much your silly face pulling annoyed me. But he is so I will resist. Bugnor in Bognor... say no more.
