It's time to go back in time when the two Ronnies were once Britain's shining stars and their comedy sketches helped produce dozens of spin-off comedy shows. For the uninitiated or for those that are too young to remember, the two Ronnies were a comedy duo that featured Ronnie Corbert and Ronnie Barker and were on television for a record number of 16 years from 1971 to 1987. There comedy skills were quite ingenious for the times and they worked quite well together, using both their physical and mental attributes to produce some of the funniest moments on television. 

The DVD features a variety of classic Two Ronnies moments that range from 1974 to 1985 and include dozens of sketches, skits and monologues. Some of the best moments on the DVD is when Ronnie Barker does one of his famous monologues and talks about a drunk BBC cameraman. At one stage, the film flips over and for a minute, I think my DVD player has gone crazy but in actual fact, it is the drunk BBC cameraman. Another hilarious moment is the Plumstead Ladies Male Choir that features two of the most ugliest female impersonators on earth, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbert.... but this is what British humour is all about!

The Best of the Two Ronnies Volume 2 doesn't have many features at all and only contains some artist profiles and a sketch selection that is really just a chapter selection. Fortunately the video quality is quite sharp and the audio is actually quite decent, considering how old the footage is on the disc. All in all, a very nice conversion to DVD. Much of the humour on the DVD is quite dated but for those that wish to have a walk down memory lane or if you have a relative that loved the two Ronnies, then this may be the perfect DVD.
