Movie Reviews

There's got to be something better than this
David Benson | London United Kingdom | 10/27/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This consists of two half hour shows in rough, un-remastered black and white, plus a public information film about not dropping litter. It is not a researched, 'best of' clip compilation as the blurb may suggest. Can't have been hard to out together. The show with Art Carney has its moments, with some genuinely funny moments of spontaneity, though I found Carney slightly over-competitive and annoying. It ends with a strangely sanctimonious, 'serious' speech from Winters about how much he loves spending time with his family. The Andy Williams show is in poor quality b/w video and is not terribly funny.
There doesn't seem to be much of Winters available on dvd, which is a shame. I would recommend the wonderful Dean Martin Variety Show dvds (available elsewhere) which feature lots of Winters' very funny contributions in glorious colour."
Would prefer zero star option
mesa maestro | mesa, arizona | 08/30/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As others have already said it was not funny. It is apparently a special from 1964, complete with the sponsors commercials. the commercials are the highlight of the hour. Jonathan says on more than one occasion that the audience members must be saying "look at him, he's making a fool of himself." I feel sure he was right. The cover has a disclaimer, saying that the dvd is neither endorsed nor authorized by Mr. Winters. That is for a very good reason. It is horrible."
VERY DISSAPOINTING
JUDY BECKER | 07/16/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE, WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED, NOTHING LIKE WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. IT WASN'T EVEN FUNNY, NOT AT ALL WHAT JOHNATHAN WINTERS WAS CAPABLE OF."
Terrible dvd
Harvey Hamburgh | Bozeman, Montana United States | 12/18/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This particular dvd of Johnathon
Winters is "unauthorized" and one can see why. If you're a fan, don't go for this package; it is a very poor selection of material, a lot of it irrelevant, and it even makes Art Carney look bad (well, he is bad here). Instead choose the "authorized" dvd that is available to see some fine stuff, both very old and very new from the comedy genius. Be warned about tbis one (very poor)."
