I enjoyed it a lot

This is a special starring Michael Bolton about him saving Christmas by getting 75,000 babies conceived on Valentine's Day with his wonderful and angelic voice. It is very entertaining all throughout, even when he sings a slower song. I enjoyed this a lot. If you like the Lonely Island, the Birthday Boys, and shows like Tim and Eric and the Mr. Show, I'm positive you'll like it. It's meant to be that way. If you look in the credits Akiva of the Lonely Island produced and directed this, Jorma, Andy, and the Birthday Boys have parts in it, and three members of the Birthday Boys wrote it. So it really just makes sense. I'm not saying if you don't like these you won't enjoy it because that's not true. You may only like it a little bit and that's okay. But if you like the kinda off, weird, but funny humor this is for you. Plus it has a lot of great celebrity cameos and great performances (acting and musically wise.) Michael Bolton's voice is amazing in this too. You might want to watch this if you like Michael Bolton (how could you not?!?-unless you're the Michael Bolton from Office Space.) I recommend this highly. Now go get love making to this on Valentine's day or else Christmas will be ruined.

One of the funniest things I've seen in a very long time

The wife and I were greeted with the big splash landing page for Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special and thought to ourselves, "What in the ever-loving-hell-of-Netflix-original-programming?!?!?!?!" I would've passed on this without a second thought. Especially after the disastrous Bill Murray Christmas Special. However, seeing the minds behind Comedy Bang Bang & Lonely Island attached to this piqued my curiosity. That and the Boltron (aka, Michael Bolton) popped up–with some surprising comedic chops–on Honest Trailer's Willy Wonka episode recently released on YouTube. So we let 'er rip... {spoilers ahead} It starts of with a music number about Valentine's Day being 10 months away and that "that's what Valentine's Day means to me." That opening, in and of itself, made me start putting on cringy-change-it-pants. Then Santa shows up with the news that his Elves have made too many toys and he needs Michael's help. I was in mid eye-roll when Michael Bolton pulls out a hand-cannon and offers to take out Santa's Elves. This was the first sign of great things to come. Sufficed to say, this brilliant special quickly had me pissing in cringy-change-it-pants. The best thing about it is the pacing. The writing constantly veers Bolton towards cliché sappy TV special territory, only to be railroaded by the surreal and outlandish. Each little bi lasting just long enough to set up the premise and get the laughs rolling before jumping onto the next. The "Punks have arrived in the studio" bit is a great example of this. Bolton starts in on a head scratching rendition of "Old Time Rock-n-Roll" to prove he's cool to a group of punk rockers, complete with a 50's diner set and Tom Cruise in Risky Business backup dancers. You barely have time to process the weird little things going on (like him pointing to floating framed guitars during guitar solos, not drinking the milkshake, playing air piano above the keyboard, a guy in a weird black foam suit playing saxophone) before it cuts to a behind-the-scenes dress rehearsal clip. The insane choreographer Carl Flossy (played by Michael Sheen) walks a confused Bolton through the inexplicable routine we just witnessed, delving deeper into madness until cutting back to the routine in progress. Bloody brilliant! My favorite skit has to be Maya Rudolph's musical meta masterpiece "Key Change." Once I understood the joke that was unfolding, I absolutely lost it. We watched this one 3 times. If you have any love for ludicrous sketch comedy, you'll love this!

Michael Bolton's brilliant special

Valentine's Day: universal day of love or cynical commercial 'holiday'? Regardless, who better than Michael Bolton - the king of cheesy love ballads - to celebrate it? Bolton has embraced his Lonely Island-inspired comeback and it shows in "Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special" special. A tenuous plot - Santa has 75,000 surplus toys and asks Bolton to get lovers making babies in time for Christmas - leads to a telethon parody, with phones manned by Bob Saget, Janeane Garofalo, Brooke Shields and Sinbad. There's plenty of silliness here: Sarah Silverman and Randall Park sing a filthy 'Sonny and Cher'-esque song, Andy Samberg's Kenny G battles Bolton (with the real Kenny G as a janitor), Chris Parnell walks Bolton through a depressingly realistic VR encounter, Bolton duets with fictional twin Michael Folton and Maya Rudolph sings an impressive song about key change. Through all this silliness, Bolton plays straight man, watching his telethon spiral. Bolton can afford to do this as his singing is the highlight; 'Old Time Rock and Roll' (with an intense choreography training scene led by Michael Sheen), 'How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?', 'Nessun Dorma' and a piano version of the Jack Sparrow song. He's also fond of spontaneously breaking into song during sentences. By the end, Bolton embraces "peak 90s Bolton" (with long hair and too much denim) to save the telethon. 'Sexy' may be silly, but it's funny and Bolton is game for anything.
