Pretty good documentary.
10 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

CLASSIC COMEDY TEAMS is a pretty good documentary. It's the first documentary to show all the classic comedy teams from the twenties to seventies. But the problem is that some things were too long and other things were too short.

The documentary was originally made by "Goodtimes Home Video". It's not a documentary you can just find at a store. You have to by a used copy from a seller. The Our Gang segment could have been cut down. The Laurel and Hardy sequence didn't show much more than shown on the later documentary, CLASSIC MOMENTS WITH LAUREL AND HARDY.

The Three Stooges did a pretty good segment, but only four of their actual films were shown. I did enjoy the Jo DeRita sequences though. But the Abbott and Costello sequence was TOO short.

The biggest problem is that the Keystone Kops and Tons of Fun sequences are only one minute long. Overall, my rating is: *** out of ***** stars. Watch it if you're interested.
