Victoria is one of my all time favorite celebs. She is a talented singer and such a fashion guru. She's an inspiration. I love her hair. I wish mine was as pretty as hers. Even though she's too thin, I think she's a great person. Perez can backoff. She is NOT a total robot. Victoria is just the best!! If you don't like her that's your problem. But if you do like her then you rock! Victoria has such a great life with 3 precious kids, a smokin' hot husband, and a great career. I hope she doesn't ruin it like how Britney and Lindsay did.
Attempting to capitalize on the success of reality shows like The Osbournes or The Simple Life. Here comes another one, and there's a twist, it's british. It lacks the fast cuts of american reality shows, but this show is so slow and so pointless. We're supposed to watch Posh Spice adjusting to her life in the US. This is enough to make me not want to see another reality show. It's a bad concept, poorly executed and the main subject is overly self indulging. She's stepping on Nicole and Paris territory. Those brats are enough to end reality shows about rich people. We don't need another one.
I just would like to say how proud I am of the American public in the way we have supported and welcomed the Beckham's to our country. I watched the show "Victoria Beckham Coming to America" and I just loved it. She is soooo funny as well as beautiful. She seems so down to earth, not at all what I expected. I wish the Beckham's nothing but the best and I hope, for as long as Victoria will do it, the show will continue. Please be very careful in California, you know, earthquakes...lol, I loved that...
I watched it yesterday night at 9:00pm. It had me laughing through the entire show. She is very funny and the people that she met were FABOULUS! I have got to say that she is unique. I loved the show so much that for the first time I’ve decide to write a review for a show. I am going to definitely tell my friends and family to watch it. I also thought that the mermaid lady was hilarious. I think the peculiar situations that Victoria gets into are marvelous and she somehow overcomes all the hurdles. She definitely gives the Hollywood spotlight a different light. This show is a must see. I will be watching this show every week.
I never really like Victoria, but I watched this show hoping she would change my opinion of her. I always thought she was quite snobbish and spoiled, well atleast she didn't change my opinion on that. I wasted my life watching an hour of her wearing (and I don't care who made them and how much they cost), clothes that looked very uncomfortable and ugly, never cracking a smile outside her house (since she keeps saying she's got a sense of humour I still never saw), and thinking that a bunch of older, very obvious ladies with face lifts, are great people (which in her circle they probably are), I felt sick after watching this program on how the rich live, she may of not wanted to mention money, but she knows how to use it. Atleast David smiles and waves to the cameras. One of the things that disgusted me was when the obvious nice Personal Assistant came and Victoria said she basically better be homely, because it's all about me, ug, I should of known to turn the TV off then. And I like David Beckham, he's cute and talented, but what's up with whenever someone mentioned him, she got so defensive? Give me a break, I will not be watching anything from her in the future.
Why do people care about a massively overpaid European soccer star who came to America with his wife? I mean really... why? why? why? Ok they are both hot - but so what? Is that it?
Id rather watch an episode of "Homeboys In Outer Space" than this thing.
Eddie Murphy in "Coming to America" was reasonably funny. This? Total crap. Send this overpaid, overhyped clown and his wife back across the pond - America already has more than enough self absorbed celebrities already. The shopping, the trendy restaurants, and more sutff thats been seen 100 times on other socalled reality shows focused on celebrities. Good thing this bloody mess is a one shot deal. Its bloody awful! As the Brits would say.
i heard about this show on one of those celebrity news thing and i was like wow everybody these days is making a show so i decided let me watch i watch the first 5 minites of it and i couldnt stop laughing i never she was so funny and and david looking better than ever they seem like a normal family that are moving to LA and learning american ways and all the crazy things that happen such as the blow up doll and the driving with the spanish licence and when she went to the neighbors and met the ladies and the lady who can do a dolphin impression this show is really funny and it is really fun to watch!!!!!~!!!
Well, I kind of missed the beginning because I wasn't too keen on watching another celebrity making a fool of themselves on a reality TV show.
But my sister and brother was watching it and I could hear them laughing from upstairs in my room. So I came down and whaddaya know? I loved every minute of it!
The show depicted how much of a family oriented person Victoria Beckham really is and that she's smarter than anyone may think she is.
I loved how she endured all the plastic surgeoned blondes saying that she needs to make friends with these women so her kids would have friends - she put her family first even though you can see that she was uncomfortable around them - especially when they started talking about money. (And she started itching! LOL!)
The earthquake scene was by far one of the funniest scene in the show and how she completely forgot what she was taught as soon as the earthquake simulator started.
"Can you see my knickers?" - had me laughing for 5 minutes straight!
Also, when they went to the adult store to buy a blow up doll to fool the paparazzi. Their faces were hilarious when they found out they were taking photos of a blow up sex doll!
And finally, the funniest line by far had to be:
"I wouldn't do that if I were you... It eats it's own poo you know!" - at the end of the credits when the Personal Assistant was allowing the dog to lick her face.
LMAO! And her PA's face after she said it! Classic!
Note to victoria beckham- when you have to employ an actress to act as your assistant, all for 'dramatic effect' then you should realise at that point that you have absolutely nothing to give to the viewing public. You have a sense a humour though, I'll give you that- you must have been laughing your head off thinking of the poor idiots (myself included) who had to endure an hour of this dross. And, my, was it painful. Why do you make things worse for yourself, Mrs Beckham?
Word of advice- just stick to the shopping and hanging out with your famous friends. Unless you want to do a Brangelina and save the entire world. Mmmm- posh saving the orphans of the world in her Manolo heels and perfect manicure....maybe not.
Oh, and by the way, you say that Americans don't get your sense of humour because it's British. I'M British and I didn't get it- what's all that about?
i'll admit it i was a spice girls freak (come one spice girls tour ticket lottery), a football fan (yea manu), and an all around anglophile. but even without all of that this show was hilarious. i've yet to delete it from my dvr. victoria's hilarious in general. but she was probably most funny when making fun of herself. the best part ever" "why would anyone think i was a blowup doll?" as she then proceeds to open her mouth in the vacant o/blow up doll manner. i hear that this was going to be a series of specials and at the last minute they changed it to the one 1 hour special. sad, so sad. i would have tuned in regularly. exactly what celebrity reality (can we still call it celebreality when it's not on vh1?) tv should be... if u missed if, find it soon.
I have been a Spice Girl fan from day One, and for Halloween for years, I was Posh Spice. I grew a little older but I never lost my love for them. I would check out every once and awhile what they were up to, check out there individual videos, relive memories and realize at the age of 20 that I was still a Spice Girl at heart and that will never change. I always saw Victoria as just a glamorous human being, someone who is fashionable but yet still silly and normal. This glimpse into her life was just as fabulous as she is. Sure, she has her blonde moments (even though she is a brunette) and you will never see her in a pair of flats. I think a the reason it drew me in so much wasn't just the fact that I love her, but it was the fact that she is normal to. She's funny, she laughs, and all she wants to to have people be honest with her. It takes a lot of guts to hunt done someone who calls you an alien and have coffee with them. She is a mature women and I would give anything in the world to spend a day with her. She is modest and just wants to live life to the fullest. Posh you will ALWAYS be my favorite Spice Girl and WELCOME TO AMERICA!!!
Welcome to America, Victoria. This special was adorable. Of course, some parts didn't show Victoria in the jmost intelligent light... but still, that's one of the reasons we loved her. The show was very well paced, with no dull moments- it was one adventure to the next. We saw Victoria get her driver's liscense, learn about earthquakes, shop, throw the first fitch at a baseball game, shop, meet her neighbors, get an assistant, buy a new house, meet Perez Hilton, fool the paparazzi with a decoy blow-up doll, and shop some more. Lukcily, Victoria made it through on time to have America ready for her family. This is right up there with Age of Love for comfort TV.
I didn't really think I was going to like the show and really didn't know it was premiering today. I typically watch the re-run of Age of Love but it was replaced by Coming to America. All in all, I know very well who Victoria and David Beckham is but haven't really paid much attention to them in the past. But I love watching her. Her personality is fun and light and she has a air of celebrity around her and at the same time an air of normalcy. Overall, she seems to be well balanced. In the first episode, she meets internet gossip, Perez Hilton. Shops for a house. Meets some very "interesting" neighbors, to say the least. Meets her new American assistant. Throws the first pitch in a baseball game after being guided by children who have questions including why does she talk so "funny?" I love just about every shoe she put on. She goes through earthquake drill. Overall, I was pleasantly surprise how much I liked the show, but its a good show. Watch @ least one episode before you make you're decision.
I absolutely loved this show!! It was hilarious. Absolutely fabulous! Victoria was so funny! And she's gorgeous to boot! Honestly, I thought the best part was either the blow-up doll or meeting Perez Hilton! How could you not love that?? Confronting him about the names he called her and everything. Haha and he actually turned the alien antena to a crown. Awe, how cute. They were funny together.
I was actually scared for her when she threw the pitch at the Dodgers game, though. I mean, seriously, was no one else terrified that she would throw it to the wrong place or something mortifying like that? But she pulled it off.
I have always been a big fan of the Beckham's so I was very execited to see this. It was great to get a a glimpse into Victoria's life and see how normal she is. I loved the part at the DMV "you don't do retouches do you"?
I'm disappointed that they didn't turn this into a miniserries but instead they just turned it into a one hour special. I do hope that NBC will do more of these specials in the future.
