Wonderful good-bye from his widow
23 May 2006 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Judy Jacklin Belushi (now Belushi-Pisano) writes about putting together this collection in her book "Samurai Widow". It is wonderful - a great goodbye to the Love of her life. Even if you didn't love him before, you will after watching this.

You see Belushi at his best, including doing Beethoven, the Godfather, Joe Cocker, and more. Most are better than the real person being portrayed could have done it.

Unfortunately, my VCR ate this tape and killed itself doing it. It STILL isn't out on DVD, but I check every now and then. If you are fortunate enough to run into the tape, or if you live in the future and the DVD was finally released, don't miss this. You'll laugh and cry and smile and maybe even sing a little. You won't watch it just once.
