Bob Saget is widely known as Danny Tanner, the father from the G-rated series, "Full House", and got a reputation as a "nice guy". What many aren't aware of is that - before "Full House" and now after - Saget is a very, very raunchy stand-up comedian. Saget's HBO special, "That Ain't Right: Good Guy Gone Wrong" plays up just how much Saget differs from his television persona.
Starting off with an amusing stroll in New York City where Saget gets recognized by the masses (and Saget responds with a mellow, "Dude."), the comedian then takes the stage and launches into an impressively profane introduction. It's not exactly a flawless start, as the comedian admits its for shock value, and that's certainly what it seems like. However, once Saget gets rolling, the comedian starts getting laughs fairly frequently.
Interestingly enough, the funniest material regarding Saget's career isn't regarding "Full House", it's Saget's apology for "America's Funniest Home Videos" and a discussion of some of the more bizarre videos sent in, as well as how lousy his jokes were. Much of the rest of the material focuses on trying to raise his daughters (while not always being the best example) and singling out one particular audience member named Jarrod to act as the punchline to several bits. The 50-minute show ends with Saget singing a couple of tunes, including "Danny Tanner Is Not Gay".
Overall, "That Ain't Right" isn't a classic, but it's a very funny effort that gets quite a few solid laughs throughout the nearly hour-long running time.
VIDEO: "That Ain't Right" is presented by HBO Home Entertainment in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. Picture quality is generally excellent throughout the show, as the image appeared crisp and clear throughout, even in the wide shots. A few tiny traces of artifacting were spotted in a couple of moments, but otherwise, the picture appeared clean. Colors looked bright and well-saturated, with no smearing or other concerns.
SOUND: Crisp, well-recorded stereo soundtrack.
EXTRAS: The "Rollin' With Saget" music video and "Strollin' With Saget", a featurette that shows more of Saget walking through NYC and chatting with various folks.
Final Thoughts: Overall, "That Ain't Right" isn't a classic, but it's a very funny effort that gets quite a few solid laughs throughout the nearly hour-long running time.
