DVD Review: “The Passion of Greg the Bunny: Best of the Film Parodies, Vol. 2″ (***1/2)
Cute, cuddly and armed with prison-worthy vocabularies, drinking problems and other nasty puppet disorders, the cast of “Greg the Bunny” specializes in deadly parodies of beloved independent films. “The Passion of Greg the Bunny: Best of the Film Parodies, Vol. 2” does not have anything as hilariously vile as the ace “Auto Focus” parody “Sex, Button Eyes and a Video Ape,” from “Vol. 1,” but it comes close many times. So, keep the kids away — these are not Elmo’s friends.
Created by Sean Baker, Spencer Chinoy and Dan Milano, “Greg the Bunny” began as a snark-filled 2002 Fox series starring Seth Green, but found more receptive ground at the Independent Film Channel in 2005. At IFC, Greg, Warren the Ape, the Wumpus, Pal Friendlies and Count Blah were put to work doing stop-on send-ups. “Vol. 2” takes aim at David Lynch in “Blue Velveteen” with Warren inhaling the nitrous oxide, while “Wacky Wednesday” shows Greg and Warren body switching in time for the ape’s most recent brush with decency laws.
