TV-special-quality hour of A&C highlights, hosted by Seinfeld--could have been better
20 March 2006 | by (south Texas USA) – See all my reviews

My vote of 5 on this TV-special is one-half of a 10--since about half of the show is vintage A&C material and interesting comments from their children. Seinfeld is a talented man, but he's basically working from a not-too-interesting script here, and there is nothing that even the moderate A&C fan doesn't already know. For some reason, I was thinking that this was actually a DEAD MEN DON"T WEAR PLAID style film where Seinfeld interacted with the boys (now THAT would be interesting, and since Seinfeld now has a lot of clout in the showbiz world, maybe he could make such a film happen?), but only one scene does that, and only for a few seconds. Overall, this is a very-good introduction to the world of Abbott & Costello for those who are not familiar with their work, and I'm glad Jerry Seinfeld got the opportunity to champion the work of his heroes, but it's nothing special and I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. If you buy the fourth Universal A&C box set, you'll get this as a bonus, and like me you'll probably watch it once, find it entertaining, and watch actual A&C films instead when you need your dose of Bud and Lou.
