If you're a Jeff Dunham fan this is a must see. I had no idea Jeff made his own puppets. This show explains how he does it. It shows how he got started and problems he has run into during his career.

I was blown away at how revealing this documentary was. I haven't read his book, but I would say this gave a really good backdrop and insight into what the book reveals about the life of Steve-O. Very well done documentary.

The recent death of singer Jerry Vale calls to mind his being a pall-bearer in 1998 for his friend Frank Sinatra. No mention of Sinatra can ever be made without mentioning his leadership role in "The Rat Pack." That is also the title of an oh-so marvelous two-part Biography retrospective of the last time in America when being talented also had cool in the equation. Danny Aiello's intense yet low-key narration holds together well the panoply of memories. Standing out among the stories about the Pack members are the life influence on Sinatra by Atlantic City bigshot Skinny D'Amato, the rise and fall of Dean Martin's partnership with Jerry Lewis and how it led to Las Vegas, and how much Peter Lawford's Kennedy inlaws relied on him to put across effectively Jack K. as Presidential material. Lewis, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh, singers Keely Smith and Sonny King plus other Pack contemporaries help paid a vivid picture of the Pack's influence on American culture. Couple this Biography package with Shawn Levy's volume "Rat Pack Confidential" and you will have an informative combination.

I have been a fan of Donnie and Mark Wahlberg since the early 90`s when they started their music careers. I enjoyed learning about how they both GOT started, challenges along the way and how they were both able to reinvent themselves as actors. Very informative and well done.
