"A sequal as a moneyspinner"

Following the tremendous success of Living with Lions from the 1997 tour, this was inevitable given the advancement in the marketing surrounding rugby in general. Unfortunately these developments had also taken a grip on the players and management as what made the original funny and engaging was ignored this time round. The similarities between on and off the pitch from the two tours are truly remarkable.

Very little is not set up, and the video diaries kept by the players are full of media speak, probably due to the players desperation not to appear negatively in front of their public. The manifestation of disappointment is also evident as the tour itself was a disappointment.

There is little in the way of individual reation in isolation, so pulic faces are the order of the day.

    I see you've posted this as a DVD review, but you've not mentioned the DVD features. Are there any extras? If so, what are they and are they any good? If you add to this, or if you change it to be posted as a "Film Only" review, which can be done by accessing "edit review" above the review and changing the drop down menu under the "Which format are you reviewing?" question at the bottom, please let me know and I'll re-rate.
