Movie Reviews

Great comedy ruined
10/03/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Get tapes or CDs of this fabulous material. Forget the VHS/animation; it severely distracts from the great comedy. The extra touches and music on the VHS are downright annoying."

"12/26/99 I HAVE BEEN A MEL BROOKS / CARL REINER FAN SINCE I WAS A TEENAGER (60's) TODAY 12/26/99 I LISTENED TO THE 2000 YEAR OLD MAN FOR THE FIRST TIME I AM ABSOLUTELY SURE I HAVE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD IN MY LIFE. IT IS THE EPITOME OF HUMOR. ENJOY !"
Amusing short video

"Mel Brooks' and Carl Reiner's 2000-year-old-man routine (circa 1961) is animated by Leo Salkin in the 1975 made-for-television special, THE 2000 YEAR OLD MAN.
The animation is functionally un-ambitious. Reiner's character becomes a gentle caricature of the comedian, Brooks's a cute little fellow in the Mr. Magoo mold. The animation compliments the soundtrack, making the transition from Reiner fed straight lines to Brooksian fanciful answers smoothly seamless. Ranging from the discovery of women to Robin Hood to Joan of Arc, mostly ad-libbed, the 2000 YOM was pure Brooks, spontaneous and constantly churning, a hit-or-miss style that could overwhelm by the sheer volume of invention.
A charming half-hour of fluff that provides a chuckle or two, worth a look, but a little too short and shallow to consider as a candidate for the permanent collection unless you're a Brooks completist.

"Mel Brooks' classic comedy skit, the 2000 Year Old Man, is a fine example of humor. However, this DVD was most definitely NOT worth the twenty bucks I had to shell out for it. The animation quality was horrible by any standards, and it distracted from the quality humor of the skit. In addition, several parts were left out of the movie. In conclusion, you would be far better off buying a CD collection."
