This strangely titled DVD is absolutely amazing - full of energy, great skating and a ton of fun. the guys at Flip have nothing to be sorry about.

You know you've got a good thing going when Johnny Rotten (former Sex Pistol, aka: John Lydon) hosts each part with a Masterpiece Theater tinge. The disc opens with Johnny in a bathrobe muttering as he wanders around. He then apologizes for the late release of "Sorry" and it all begins.

Sorry is filmed so well it hurts. All the parts kill and this video will go down as one of the most sought after SK8 videos of all time. You may be wondering why you can't find it for sale anymore. You've probably seen "Really Sorry". Don't fret, this Flip DVD contains both releases. Yay!

I suspect they are now both packaged on one DVD because "Really Sorry" really sucks - in comparison. So, go out and buy Really Sorry and revel in the knowledge that Sorry comes with it. We chose to review it separately because "Sorry" is such an amazing flick and "Really Sorry" is just plain sorry - again by comparison.

It's virtually the same skaters, but the difference is night and day. they should have gotten Johnny rotten to reprise his hosting role. He was classic.

Bonus Stuff

Japan Skit - The world premiere in Japan... or so they said. Ali was out in the street trying to coax people to come to the premiere. The language barrier seemed to get tin the way and only a dozen people came. After the film ran, they all got up and left - no one cared. I guess the audience didn't realize what they were getting invited to see.

There's also a slow-mo section and outtakes from the Sorry Tour.

The Bottom Line

Remember, "Really Sorry" also contains the original "Sorry", complete with bonus footage. That's the only way to get the original "Sorry" video.
