Default Rutles sequel to finally be released March, 2005

Rutles sequel to finally be released March, 2005
[official Press Release]

THE RUTLES 2: CAN'T BUY ME LUNCH

Long-Awaited Sequel to The Rutles: All You Need is Cash Available for the First Time on Video on March 1, 2005 All-star cast including Eric Idle, David Bowie, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jewel, Gary Shandling, Salman Rushdie, Clint Black, Billy Connolly, Bonnie Raitt, and many more!

Burbank, CA (December 15, 2004) -- The Rutles are coming! The Rutles are coming! Coming to DVD that is, on March 1, 2005 when Warner Home Video presents the DVD premiere of The Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch. From executive producers Lorne Michaels and Eric Idle, this is the highly anticipated sequel to The Rutles: All You Need is Cash. Previously unavailable on video and only seen by fans in exclusive, limited screenings, this hysterical follow-up to Eric Idle's1978 mockumentary about the Beatles reveals the final exploits of The Rutles as they do a reunion tour through America.

Fans of The Rutles will be thrilled at the opportunity to revisit this great band's story, including footage from historic performances, plus interviews with many artists who were inspired by the legendary band including, David Bowie, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jewel, Gary Shandling, Salman Rushdie, Clint Black, Billy Connolly, Bonnie Raitt, and many more. The Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch is packed with special features including extensive deleted scenes, a never-before-seen alternate ending, and a bonus "Easter egg."

In 1976, Eric Idle and Neil Innes, founding members of the cult comedy-rock group The Bonzo Dog Band (chosen by The Beatles to appear in their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour), founded The Rutles, a mythical band created to parody The Beatles. The Rutles made their American debut that year with the airing of their first video, "I Must Be in Love," on Saturday Night Live. In 1978 NBC aired the group's first television special, All You Need is Cash, which was produced by Lorne Michaels and firmly established the group's cult status.

The Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch received its world premiere in Los Angeles in 2003 at the first annual Don't Knock the Rock Festival, and now makes its debut on DVD. Neil Innes wrote, recorded and produced all the music - witty pastiches of Beatles songs, while Eric Idle wrote and co-directed the spoof documentary. Both acted in All You Need is Cash, and now are back in this sequel with Innes cast as Ron Nasty (the John Lennon character) and Idle as Dirk McQuickly (the Paul McCartney role), along with Ricky Fataar (a top session musician and '70s-era Beach Boy) who plays Stig O'Hara (the George Harrison character), and British drummer John Halsey, who became Barry Wom, The Rutles version of Ringo Starr.

"The Beatles, Monty Python, The Rutles -- all influential entertainers who have stood the test of time. The Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch is a must-have DVD for not only the passionate and dedicated core fans, but also those who have only "heard" the legendary tales about the Rutles," said Christine Martinez, WHV Vice President, Non-theatrical Franchise Marketing.

Well, their legend will last a lunchtime, so that's pretty close to one.

I wonder if the "extensive deleted scenes" is the extra footage Eric was talking about at the LA premiere. The screening we saw was indeed under an hour long. But he said there was more that he wanted to be put in if he ever got Warner's approval for the release. It'll be interesting to see what else is in there. Whatever the price will be, it'll be worth it because what I did see was very, very funny!
Btw, Blackguard efforts with his petition did not go unnoticed. Recently he received a package of goodies from Mr. Idle's people in Hollywood. Personally autographed Python items from Eric. You see, BG won't toot his own horn, so blabbermouth here will. Heck, I'm just being a proud wife.

it was good! showed footage from the movies and some scenes that were never seen, possibly from the cutting room floor. interviews were done with peter asher ( of peter & gordon), graham nash, david bowie, carrie fisher, tom hanks, robin williams, salman rushdie, gary shandling, jewel, steve martin. some songs from "archaeology" were included into the film. brief synopsis of the rutles history from their beginnings to their break-up done along with the fans' memories of the group, and lots of funny bits in between. very pythonesque and lives up to the original rutles film.
it would have been kewl if the rest of the rutles were in it to see what they might be up to right now in the present. i was hoping that neil innes, ricky fataar, and and john (admiral ..lol) halsey would have been in it. i wonder if they were asked by eric to appear in this follow-up? maybe,they could have done it sort of anthology style?

I'm not sure about the others, but I think Neil and Eric have some kind of rift between them (dont ask for details, cuz I really dont know what happened). according to what i've heard from Neil, he was more than willing to participate in Rutles 2 but Eric never asked him. If i remember correctly neil said that eric really doesnt speak to him anymore, which is kinda sad...

Blast! Why must I be out of the country! I loved the first one, I sit and watch it by myself cause none of my friends are nutty enough to get all the references.
