In 2005, the most popular stand-up act barnstorming America is the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, and the Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again is one of the best DVDs in all of Wal-Mart. This follow-up to the overwhelmingly successful 2003 Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie features the hilarious return of popular comics Ron White, Bill Engvall, Jeff Foxworthy, and Larry The Cable Guy. If this show doesn’t make you laugh, then you’ve got serious problems.
Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again kicks off with the tour bus rolling down a Colorado highway. The four comedy superstars decide to draw numbers from a hat to decide who will go first, second, third, and fourth Larry The Cable Guy draws seven-and-a-half – but that’s the hat size tag!
You’ll have to watch this movie for yourself to see in which order the comics perform. But I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t really matter. With Larry’s “Git-R-Done” tagline and “Lord, I apologize” warnings, Ron White’s liquor induced truth-telling, Bill Engvall’s dissection of relationships, and Jeff Foxworthy’s classic comedy – you won’t find a dull moment. I’d love to provide you with an anecdote (but if I knew the difference between an anecdote and antidote, then my childhood friend would still be alive). So instead, I’ll avoid examples and leave the individual jokes for your surprise enjoyment
However, I will fill you in on the great ending. One of the more hilarious segments of the show is where the four comics gather on stage following their individual performances. In the original Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the men told personal stories. In Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again, Larry The Cable Guy plays (or at least attempts to play) a guitar while each of the men finishes the quotation “I believe” in a song by the same name. It’s a funny exchange with some great one-liners, such as “I believe that if you can’t say something nice, then you must be talking about Hillary Clinton” (Jeff Foxworthy) and “I believe if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then go find someone who life gave vodka to and have a big-ass party!” (Ron White)
Just as good as the original (an extremely rare occurrence in movie sequels), Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again is two hours of non-stop laughs, and if you have to ask why, then “here’s your sign”! This is simply one of the funniest DVDs ever made, and that’s why it’s a definite must-see movie
