Overview

The full-frame transfer for The Queens of Comedy works well enough in presenting the concert film, but it contains nothing spectacular. The visual quality resembles a basic television comedy special, and while it includes no major defects, the colors lack any special qualities. The footage of the queens strolling through Memphis resembles a home video with its amateurish look and bland colors. It does have a certain appeal, and the picture is clear, but it's not much above average. This disc offers a choice between a 5.1-channel Dolby Digital transfer and a 2.0-channel Dolby Surround track. The differences between the two audio tracks are minimal, and barely discernible without close inspection. This film is composed almost entirely of dialogue from the stand-up routines, so the capabilities of the sound field aren't really utilized. Both tracks provide plenty of clarity to hear all the jokes, and that's enough for this movie. The only significant extra feature on this disc is ten minutes of deleted behind-the-scenes footage. The material includes scenes backstage, at a hair salon, radio show, photo shoot, and during random moments on the streets of Memphis. All four women have a nice connection with each other and display their energetic personalities throughout these moments, but this material is fairly dull, and offers little insight into the backgrounds of the stars. Additional concert footage would be a nice addition. The material included is enjoyable, but it lacks any moments of great interest.

This movie was incredibly funny! Not only are these women beautiful, but they have a way of looking at life and relationships that can give anyone a good, hard belly laugh! Each woman brings her own unique presence to the show. Great Film!
