The Secret Policeman's Other Ball (1982)
Critic Reviews for The Secret Policeman's Other Ball
The material photographed in The Secret Policeman's Other Ball is sometimes pretty funny, but it tends to get sidetracked by the low-budget videotape recording of the show, and the result is seen through a lens, darkly.
Some of the humor slides over into tastelessness, but most of it is rousing fun in the tradition of the groups from which these performers have sprung.
Technically smoother than its predecessors, this is otherwise the mixture as before: comics and musicians, sometimes in unfamiliar permutations, doing their party pieces on behalf of Amnesty.
Though it looks more like a television special than a conventional movie, The Secret Policeman's Other Ball contains some of the funniest sequences to be found in any first-run movie at the minute.
Combining footage from benefits staged in aid of Amnesty International, this movie is more a souvenir than great cinema.
Audience Reviews for The Secret Policeman's Other Ball
I think this is the best ever performance of "I don't like Mondays". The musical side of this alone is worth watching it for.
