Editorial Reviews

Bowfinger: How does Bobby Bowfinger (Steve Martin), Hollywood’s least successful director, get Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy), Hollywood’s biggest star, in his ultra low-budget film? Any way he can. With an ingenious scheme, Bowfinger sets out to trick the celebrity into the performance of a lifetime. Parenthood: Steve Martin stars as Gil, a funny and loving husband who’s trying too hard to be the “perfect” parent to his kids. Co-starring Rick Moranis, Keanu Reeves, Jason Robards, Mary Steenburgen and Dianne Wiest, Parenthood is a heartwarming drama that explores life’s most rewarding occupation. Housesitter: Steven Martin and Goldie Hawn shine in this romantic comedy. Newton’s (Martin) dream house stands empty after his girlfriend (Dana Delany) rejects his marriage proposal. But everything changes when Gwen (Hawn) moves in, charming his neighbors, colleagues and family…and maybe even Newton himself. Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid: Steve Martin is P.I. Rigby Reardon. He’s ready to take on anything when Juliet Forrest (Rachel Ward) appears with a case: her father, a noted scientist, philanthropist and cheese maker, has died mysteriously. With a little help from Humphrey Bogart, Reardon sets out to get his man. The Lonely Guy: This poignant comedy follows the progress of Larry (Steve Martin) and his buddy Warren (Charles Grodin) as they attempt to eke out a successful social life in The Big Apple. They’re losers until everything changes when Larry writes a book that turns loneliness into the ultimate love potion.

    For the price this is a pretty decent pack of Steve Martin films. You get Parenthood, a terrific drama/comedy with an ensemble cast. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (my personal favorite), House Sitter, a good romantic comedy with Goldie Hawn, Bowfinger, a satire of the Hollywood film industry with Eddie Murphy, and The Lonely Guy with Charles Grodin. Three DVDs, Bowfinger is on its own disc with extras. Two films per disc for the other four films, no extras except a trailer on Dead Men. The transfers look pretty good, Bowfinger and Dead Men look the best. Of the five, only Bowfinger and Parenthood have 5.1 audio, rest are stereo. All of them are pretty funny, but The Lonely Guy is probably the weakest film. Again good value for the $.

    If you are a fan of Steve Martin, this is a must have. He is crazy and yet you can relate to him. I guess there is a level of craziness in all of us. Only Steve Martin gladly puts it on display.

    I love these movies, some more then others. Bowfinger and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid the least, but they were doable. The other 3 were well worth the price of this bargain.

    This was a great bargain to get 5 Steve Martin movies in one set. Granted, his humor is a big unusual, the movies were great fun and I'm glad they are part of my collection.

    Universal has packaged this dandy film collection of actor-comedian Steve Martin's work. Is it worth it? Most definitely. Each film shows Martin's versatility, and each has great merit. Let's begin in chronological order...
    "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" (1982) is an early & ambitious little Martin-Carl Reiner (director) collaboration. This loving spoof of the private eye genre of old Hollywood casts Martin as Rigby Reardon (even Martin dyed his hair dark for black & white filming), whose latest case gets him up to his fedora in mystery, double-crosses, and yep, Nazi intrigue. The film's gimmick of blending Martin into scenes with actual film footage from such legendary actors as Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Alan Ladd, Vincent Price, etc., is done so well (mind you, this was years before Tom Hanks did the same in "Forrest Gump" with CGI) that it's both startling & cleverly funny.
    "The Lonely Guy" (1984) is an underrated little Martin film that has some something to say about "lonely guys" wandering the city in between some big laughs. Martin plays the title character who writes greeting cards, gets dumped by his girlfriend, runs into the girl of his dreams (the wonderful Judith Ivey), then proceeds to pursue, and lose her, and pursue, etc. Charles Grodin is terrific as Martin's new pal, who's just as lonely--and pathetic--as he is.
    "Parenthood" (1989) became a monster hit for both Martin and director Ron Howard (case in point: A hit TV series has popped up twenty years later). This time, Martin leads an excellent cast ensemble (each actor perfectly cast) about how "life is so messy" in the realm of parenting & family ties. It's both hilarious & touching.

    We are Steve Martin fans at our house. Love watching these movies over and over. This is a good deal for all the movies and my son asked for it for his birthday.
