Customer Review

OK, this film is a guilty pleasure for me. Yes, it's funny but since the Frankenstein/Dracula/Wolfman pictures had become parodies of their originals by this time, that's not necessarily saying a lot. What works for A&C Meet...is the writing and performances by all the principles. Lugosi and Chaney are quite adept at playing their roles for laughs. Poor Glenn Strange as the ailing Monster isn't given much to do. In fact, by the time Strange took on the role the Monster was little more than an after thought tacked on to the conclusion.
This is the best of the A&C Meets films. The direction is pretty tight and the picture quality on the DVD crisp and vivd. The audio commentary and other extras weren't just thrown together. All in all this is an entertaining way to spend an evening with the kids. It's still pretty funny 50 years on. Lou Costello's slow burn reactions are classic. There wasn't a better straight man than Bud Abbott (although the Monster came pretty darn close in this film).
