| See it if you can - before it's too late
'Likely Stories, Vol. 2' is unquestionably one of the funniest vignette compilations I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. All the players deliver excellent performances, with DeVito and Perlman in roles they seemed born to play ('The Selling of Vince D'Angelo'). 'School, Girls, and You' features a young Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) and the ever-dignified Patrick Macnee ('The Avengers') in a 1950s style health education film on co-ed education. Other cast members include Tim Thomerson, John Roarke, Bruce Kimmel, and Gerritt Graham - and they do not disappoint. Opening with a clever parody of 'A Clockwork Orange', 'Likely Stories, Vol. 2' follows through as the Alexesque narrator promises: I was entertained, all right.

10/10 claw scratches – comedy gold!
