I REMEMBER WATCHING THIS SHOW WHEN IT WAS ON TV IN 1978. I REALLY LOVED IT. IT HAS 2 OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE IN IT ( BUDDY HACKETT AND HARVEY KORMAN ) WHAT IS FUNNY I WAS LOOKING FOR THIS ON NETFLIX AND THEY DID NOT HAVE IT SO I THOUGHT IT HAD ALREADY BEEN PUT OUT BUT I JUST LOOKED IT UP HERE AND IT COMES OUT ON SEPT. 25TH. STILL AFTER ALL THIS TIME IT IS STILL FRESH IN MY MIND SO THAT TELLS YOU WHAT A GREAT MOVIE THIS IS.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok October 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
This film from the '70s was ok. I thought the film one dimensional. More was focused on Lou vs. Bud. Also I have seen Buddy Hackett do better. It would be great if someone did an updated version of Bud and Lou. My opinion is half the story was left out about these two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy at its finest November 7, 2012
What more can I say, than Bud and Lou are the templates of some of the greatest comedians today. My kids watched this DVD and immediately found a common connection with the comedians they laugh at today. My Husband and I have plenty of memories of Bud and Lou and find it a true pleasure getting the opportunity of having this on a easily obtainable and affordable DVD special.

Great movie....fantastic acting....They did a fantastic job playing Bud & Lou, I believe they did an excellent job showing the inner life of these great comedians and the hell that Bud went through to really keep this team together.

I really enjoyed watching this movie. I know that it was a TV Movie back in the day but I missed it when it was televised. I had always wanted to see this and was very glad to find it on Amazon. I found this movie to be quite poignant.
