Editorial Reviews

In the early 80s, 'Saturday Night Live' was coming back alive and the reason was Eddie Murphy. It's all here- Gumby, Buckwheat, Little Richard Simmons, and a dip in James Brown's Hot Tub. Pay a visit to Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood and see the best of Velvet Jones, Stevie Wonder, Solomon and Pudge, and more. Plus there's extra material, including outrageous outtakes and bloopers.

1.0 out of 5 stars rip off July 19, 2005
I saw the original VHS years ago when it came out and it was great. So how come in this day and age of DVD digital storage does this DVD come off as a total rip off? Let me explain: Firstly, it's not complete I mean where is "James Brown is Annie", "Kill the White People" and other sketches contained on the original VHS cassette? Since one can store more on a DVD than a VHS why didn't the producers of this DVD not make a simple transferral of the VHS cassette? As a consumer one expects quality and since many of the VHS excerpts are missing how can you possibly refer to it as The Best of Eddie Murphy (Bonus Edition) when the VHS format from years ago was vastly superior?

I don't understand why this DVD collection is at least not a verbatim copy of the VHS cassette. They could of then added extras to it and hailed it as something special. I'm sure there would have been enough space on the DVD to incorprate all of the VHS cassette and then some extras making it a DVD worth having.

As it stands I now have to buy the original VHS cassete in order to enjoy my favourite sketches of Eddie Murphy. Thereby having good video quality (DVD) alongside an outdated format of inferior quality (VHS) and paying double the money.

I'm pretty sure Eddie Murphy had nothing to do with the production of this DVD he probably does not own the rights to his SNL years.I find it an insult to him and to the consumer not to give the public the best possible product which in this day and age is possible.

I regret having bought the DVD version and had I known sketches were missing I would not have purchased it at all.

First off, I love Eddie Murphy. In my opinion, he's one of the more brilliant talents to come out of SNL. But it's a crying shame that sketches that were included on the original VHS version of "Eddie Murphy: Best of SNL" have been deleted from the DVD version. My particular favorite piece (Eddie playing a rastafarian singing "we're gonna kill da white people" at a meeting of mostly white VFW members) is NOT on this DVD along with a number of others. Have the SNL folks suddenly become squeamish and politically correct - I can only assume that such cowardice and overly correct behavior is at the root of such an obvious ommission. After having owned the VHS version, I can honestly say that I regret having purchased the DVD. I would return it if I could. Listen to the other viewers and don't be fooled.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip Off January 4, 2006
Like many of the other reviewers I feel cheated. Anything contoversial was left out. As a dumb suburban honkey myself, I demand the reissue of this dvd with "Kill the White People". What good are all those funny sketches if SNL doesn't have the balls to put them on dvd?

I also didn't read any reviews as I assumed I was getting the same product that was put on vhs years ago. Instead I got scammed. What's even worse is the "bonus scene" is the Opie Cunningham interview which was already on the original vhs. Please explain how this is a bonus.

I was furious when the movie ended. The least they can do is put out a part 2. I thought I was buying the Cadillac of comedy. Instead I got the Ford Pinto of crap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out loud Laughs but not ALL of his best stuff! August 30, 2005
Don't get me wrong this is classic stuff. Besides Joe Piscopo - Eddie Murphy saved SNL during the early 80's. BUT - Does anybody remember Eddie doing an absolutely amazing impression of JERRY LEWIS?? Where is this sketch at?? He played a younger Jerry Lewis and Joe Piscopo played an older version and it is called 'Jerry Lewis's School of Comedy' or something like that. It is one of the funniest sketches in SNL history. Eddie played Jerry so dead-on perfect that he actually caused Joe to stop the sketch and bust out laughing at one point - its hilarious! :D That and Eddie did a lot of Gumby skits that was funnier than what is on the DVD. I dont think SNL did this justice at all. And where was 'KILL THE WHITE PEOPLE' at??? Or what about 'Ugly People Sex'?? Shame on SNL.

1.0 out of 5 stars This DVD sooooo Sucks December 2, 2005
By T. Reid
Format:VHS Tape
I have NEVER posted a review here before, but I was so disappointed in this DVD that I just had to speak on it.

Ok, this is a reissue of this DVD and it is missing so many skits from the original that it isn't even funny. Just a few of the missing skits:

1. Kill the white people.

2. There are NO Gumby skits.

3. There is only one Mr Robinson's Neighborhood skit where there should have been three.

4. White people slavery town with Stevie Wonder.

There are more, but I can't name them all. If you can find the ORIGINAL buy it and buy it quickly. You will laugh until you wet yourself. You will remember what the golden age of SNL was really about. Don't waste your money on this poor imitation.

This DVD has collected most of the best moments compiled on the VHS best-of Eddie Murphy version that came out circa the late 80s, but is missing a few moments that could have easily been fit in.
1) The Eddie Murphy "Ronald Reagan is my father" skit, which has Murphy pleading for his father to return, talking about how the last time he saw him was when he asked him to get some cereal, and he never came back.
2) Where Eddie Murphy interviews Ron Howard about his new movie, but Murphy can't get over that Ron Howard once played Opie on The Andy Griffiths Show, frustrating Howard.
3) Where Eddie Murphy and Stevie Wonder do a commercial for something called similar to Plantation Land, where people can go and pick cotton, being treated like slaves.
4) A talent show at a veterans post, with Tyrone and his Reggae Band, where Eddie Murphy plays the lead singer singing some hilarious lines I probably can't mention here, so I won't, but it would also ruin the humor. but let's just say the crowd is mad, and starts to leave. Murphy manages to both show the honesty in reggae music, and also make fun of reggae itself.
5) Popeil's Galactic Prophylactic, a superstrong condom that can last decades and be passed down generation to generation. ultra-hilarious.
So the DVD version is funny, but it's too bad they couldn't find room for these. rather disappointing. The DVD is still worth getting, but try finding a copy of the videotape.
