Movie Reviews

Hilarious stuff from my favorite comedy team
JPL | California | 12/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Abbot & Costello: Funniest Routines Vol 1 is a great collection of classic routines from my favorite comedy team. There is close to an hour and a half of comedy on the disc, and they're the type of bits the whole family can enjoy.

There's a wide variety of stuff here, and it all looks great. Two of the bonus features have been colorized, the rest are presented from a great B&W print, that is probably the best one I've seen. The bonus features that are presented in color are the Trailer for "Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein" and a Campbell's Soup commercial. Here's hoping for an all out colorized version of A&C Meet Frankenstein!

For the curious among you, here's a list of the included routines:

-Hole in the Wall
-The Magic Act Bit
-Army Drill
-Niagara Falls
-Jonah and the Whale
-7 X 13 is 28
-The Piano Bit
-The Lemon Bit
-The Dice Game
-Who's on First?

DVD has truly been a blessing to us fans of old time TV. This, and Volume 2, are a great way to have some classic Abbott & Costello routines available to enjoy whenever you want.

Abbott & Costello: Funniest Routines - Vol. 2"
Just plain funny
RJM Music Man | Philadelphia, Pa | 12/28/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Abbott and Costello were just plain funny. Their timing was impecable. It' great to see all of their stuff ressurected for all of us to see once again. For anyone to want to see these (or the 3 Stooges) colorized is ludicrous. Colorized versions are phony looking and washed out. These are meant to be seen in their original format."
