"URGH! This is the full-screen version, i.e. it's cropped! Maybe I missed this but I don't see it anywhere in the description! These movies are both awesome but now I have to buy them again."
Great Steve Martin double feature.

"This great double feature DVD is a must have for fans of Steve Martin. Steve Martin in my honest opinion is one of the funniest comedians ever and one of the best original cast members of SNL, his older films were obviously the best and these two present some of his best work. If only some of his more recent stuff was as good as these films, but unfortunately they aren't.
In My Blue Heaven, Steve Martin plays a gangster named Vinnie who carries on his dodgy deals even when he's taken into the witness protection program. These shenanigans cause Vinnie to run afoul of the local authorities, which makes life difficult for the uptight and nerdy FBI agent (Rick Moranis) assigned to protect him. Soon the agent is struggling to keep Vinnie out of the clutches of a tough-as-nails assistant D.A. (Joan Cusack) who wants to see him behind bars. You can't help but like this guy! Watch as he tries to ditch Rick's character in the airport. There are many familiar faces in the cast and a happy ending to boot. Great stuff and funny as hell!.
In The Man With Two Brains, Martin plays Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr (a name that's impossible to pronounce) who excels as a brain surgeon and who also falls in love with a dis-membered brain in a jar, and Kathleen Turner was perfect as the heartless gold-digger wife role, she was just as funny too. The Man With Two Brains was an excellent sci/fi comedy film, it deserves to be up there with Airplane! and The Naked Gun in the best 'stupid-funny' films of all time. There's this hilarious scene where he's talking to a picture of his dead wife trying to ask her permission if he could marry the attractive gold digger (Kathleen Turner) and asks for a sign from god or something if he's doing the right thing, then all of a sudden lightning strikes and there's this weird spooky voice, so he decides to keep the picture in the closet, HILARIOUS STUFF! Steve Martin's comic timing was perfect and had me laughing out loud several times. These two films were alot of fun and I highly recommend these brilliant comedies especially if your a Steve Martin fan, enjoy!."

"My Blue Heaven is a classic bit of comedy acted to perfection by Steve Martin. As with each of his movies he is funny throughout. And watching a good movie is a lot of fun, hey that's my philosophy, I should write that down."
