A real bargain for the Steven Martin aficionado...

"This is a five star rating of three DVDs as a bargain, which is different from rating each movie as a five star movie.
In this collection of three movies done early in his acting career, Steve Martin is cast in roles taking advantage of his unique forms of comedy, slapstick, and sophistication. We have:
- **** Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (with its use of cameos from other films and the infamous "Friends and Enemies of Carlotta" list),
- ***** The Jerk (a cult classic... "He hates cans!), and
- *** The Lonely Guy ( the sleeper... literally something in between the comedy of The Jerk and "seriousness" of Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid).
The weaker movie of the three is The Lonely Guy, a movie of the Neil Simon play, but if you consider it a freebie in this collection, there's no complaint!"

"all three are top notch comedy in keeping with steve Martin's style of humor. If you like any of these try "Planes, Trains and Automobiles"."
Great Collection of Steve Martin Movies

"The idea was really good....all three of the movies were good in
the theater. However,when I recevied the DVDs, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid was defective. This is the only reason for the 3-star rating. Had to return the collection. However, could not be more pleased with Amazon's return policy...they were very prompt; I had no trouble at all. Have ordered many items from Amazon, and will continue to to so."
