I think itís important to explain exactly ďwhatĒ FARCE OF THE PENGUINS is. Itís a collection of stock footage of real life penguins with actors talking as if the penguins are talking. Itís basically what it would be like if you muted the discovery channel and you and your friend provided the voices for the animalsÖexcept not as funny. Thereís no reason to question how or why this film got made because you have to figure it didnít cost Saget anything except a couple of hours and some favors to all the stars that participated. I guess there are some advantages to knowing the Olsen twins after all.
The movie itself is just plain bad. There may be a scene or two that will make you laugh, but itís not enough. There are so many misses in this film that you will literally bury your head in your hands half way through. Saget tried to make it dirty and funny, but he succeeded at neither. I found it to be void of all humor and a complete waste of time. This is normally the time where Iíd suggest some things that would make this better, but all of my suggestions would make it MARCH OF THE PENGUINS because aside from the little waddle, penguins arenít funny.
To the earthís Ice Hole and Back with Bob Saget (15:22): You canít even get a 15 minute featurette without stock footage and bad sexual innuendos. Itís Bob Saget pretending to be in Antarctica talking about the film and pretending to be serious. It has itís moments, but it gets old quick.
Bonus Footage (7:08): These are actually deleted scenes. Most of them contain worse language, but they all feel just like the rest of the movie. Thereís nothing special here but if you can make it through the feature film, you might as well top it off with some deleted scenes.
Behind the scenes Montage (11:15): If thereís a bright spot on the DVD, itís this montage. Again, Iím not sure how he got these guys to do this movie, but he did. This montage is his trophyÖand proof that he has friends.
