The Three Amigos Outrageous! (Stand-Up Comedy)


Picture: C+ Sound: B- Extras: D Concert: C+



Stand-up comedy has become it own subgenre thanks to years of censorship-free cable programming, but the occasional theatrical film release shows up just the same. The Three Amigos Outrageous! is a recent and shockingly brief 74 minutes with Carlos Mencia, Pablo Francisco and Freddie Soto. Despite the R-rating, the program is not as shocking and politically incorrect enough as it should have been.


The jokes sometimes bring a smile to ones face, but unless you are really set up for a certain kind of humor, this feature will not impress you much. It is not that the title comics are unfunny or untalented, but that they do not go far enough, feel like they are winging it too much and should have been much funnier considering how short this was. They are names to be on the lookout for, but I can see why this did not get a wide release. Miramax at least issued it, but better luck next time for the trio.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image is not the greatest, lacking detail, but is sufficient for the stand-up routines. The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is about as good as Dolby can be for comedy like this. There are no extras either, so this is a very basic disc. I guess director C.B. Harding had nothing to say or Miramax just wanted to get it issued.
