In this collection of three movies done early in his acting career, Steve Martin is cast in roles taking advantage of his unique forms of comedy, slapstick, and sophistication. We have:
- **** Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (with its use of cameos from other films and the infamous "Friends and Enemies of Carlotta" list),
- ***** The Jerk (a cult classic... "He hates cans!), and
- *** The Lonely Guy ( the sleeper... literally something in between the comedy of The Jerk and "seriousness" of Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid).
The weaker movie of the three is The Lonely Guy, a movie of the Neil Simon play, but if you consider it a freebie in this collection, there's no complaint!
that really wasn't appreciated by most.
I have seen the movie on cable and the picture was excellent, unfortunately that is not the case with
the version in this release. This version looks like it was shot through cheesecloth.
The print was not cleaned up at all, there are various artifacts throughout.
The picture quality for all the movies in this set is at most fair.
See other reviewers comments for the plot lines to the movies.
I don't know why The Lonely Guy is in this set, it should have been The Man With Two Brains.
The movies in the Wild and Crazy collection are at least anamorphic widescreen.
Ended purchasing Dead Man Don't Wear Plaid with out the other movies and while the picture is better,
the movie is widescreen, but not anamorphic widescreen (16 x 9 enhanced).
That means there are bars along the sides as well as the top and bottom.
Too many times there is very little if any information about the quality of the movies.
It should be a requirement that companies provide that information.
Great classic Steve Martin flicks!
The package is your typical DVD multi-pack.
It's a good set of movies for the price.
