How can they put out the Best of Chris Rock and the Best of Adam Sandler on DVD, and pass over this one? Further proof that young people definitely have more influence in marketing and media than us "oldies." This compilation does not include all of John Belushi's greatest skits from SNL, and I would have tossed out a few (the Bees, for example, which I never found funny). But, like the Best of Eddie Murphy (which, I think, is coming out on DVD soon, so maybe there's hope), there are moments in this video that I can watch over and over and still cry from laughing so hard: Joe "John" Cocker, an impromptu parody of Joe Cocker that's dead-on (and, typical for John Belushi, completely over-the-top); Samurai Delicatessen (any of the Samurai skits would have done, but this one is perfect); The Godfather in Group Therapy; his "cool, snorting" Beethoven. It even ends on an ironic, somewhat morbid note (a little skit showing Belushi as an old man, talking about how he outlived the other players). Message to Warner Home video--GET THIS OUT ON DVD, AND QUICK!!!!!
