Product Overview

Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris) has been a runaway, prostitute, drug addict, and general misfit all her life. But upon her release from prison, the 46-year-old decides it's time to clean up her life, move back in with her family, and earn a high-school diploma. Starting over as a freshman, hapless Jerri returns to class amidst a hostile student body and an unhelpful, self-involved faculty--among them pseudo-sensitive art teacher Geoffrey Jellineck (Paul Dinello); ambiguously gay history teacher Charles Noblet (Stephen Colbert); and Machiavellian principal Onyx Blackman (Greg Hollimon)--while contending with a dysfunctional home life that includes her elderly father (Roberto Gari), evil stepmother (Deborah Rush), and bullying half-brother (Larc Spies). As ex-con Jerri maneuvers through the pecking order of teen life with zero social savoir-faire and her own brand of clueless prison ethics, STRANGERS WITH CANDY serves as a biting, politically incorrect satire of moralizing after-school specials and a hilarious look at the pangs of growing up--again. This collection presents the sadly defunct television series in its entirety with all three seasons.System Requirements:Running Time 660 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review In general, unless you buy the premise, the running gags, the subtle under the gaydar humor, and attempts at social relevance, you will find Strangers with Candy a dreary, puzzling experience. For some reason, the show keeps reminding one of Pete and Pete, a Nickelodeon offering in which two brothers, both named Pete, have surreal adventures in a wacky suburban wonderworld. What both shows have in common is a droll tone, a self-satisfied inner acknowledgement that it's very funny and incredibly clever, and that only the "right" people will get it.
