Abbott and Costello Meet Jerry Seinfeld (1994)

*** (out of 4)

Jerry Seinfeld hosts this documentary taking a look at the careers of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, two comedians who struggled for years before finding one another and becoming one of the most legendary comedy duos in history. Throughout the 47-minutes we see clips from some of their classic movies as well as many episodes from their television series. Fans of the duo probably won't learn anything new here but I think the documentary is strong enough to where you could show someone who wasn't familiar with the group and it would turn them into fans. Many of the gags aren't shown in a complete form, which I think sometimes hurts the gags but the director and producers here did a nice job of not letting this happen. I thought they did a very good job at picking the clips and showing some of the better moments in the series. We learn through the narration about which gags they used to perform on the stage and we get examples of how they would add or take things away from the routines. Even better are some clips of the live television show where things go horribly wrong yet the duo manage to work around the errors and make the skits all the more memorable. Just check out the sequence where a glass vase breaks and they need it for the end of the routine so Costello just takes over and delivers non-stop laughs. Of course, with such a short running time there are various highlights that are overlooked but I think for the most part this documentary gets its job done. We also get quick interviews with Vickie Abbott and Bud Abbot, Jr.. Also on hand are some family movies showing the duo off screen and we also hear about their eventual break-up.
