5.0 out of 5 stars A New Leaf Needs a New Life, March 7, 2005
This review is from: A New Leaf [VHS] (VHS Tape)
And what would this new life be for this small plastic encased fern of comic genius - A Restored Director's Cut DVD!

Otherwise what else can be said that has not already been voiced by all who have reviewed this absolute "True Classic" of cinematic satirical comedy. Walter Mathau is brilliant and I agree with all who feel that it is probably his greatest comedic performance. It is unfortunate that it was and still seems to be a sleeper in the film world. The fact that it is not in the top 100 of the funniest comedies of all time confirms this oversight.

But a greater oversight would be to continue to ignore this bit of celluoid genius by not preserving it in a beautiful DVD restoration of Elaine Mays original Director's cut.

Perhaps if enough "film buffs in the know" spoke out this would happen.....if only!
