The Best Of Abbott & Costello, Vol. 1 (Buck Privat&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Bud Abbott
4.0 out of 5 stars Watts, watts, watts!!, April 26 2004
With 10,000 volts he could be the president! Sure some of the jokes are dated but the sheer number of quality exchanges like that wacky watts are volts (with an in joke to the who's on first skit) in just one movie like Who Done it may be worth the price but to get eight is just a tremedous value.
I suspect that for all of us who have watched these films rerunning on sundays, it will bring back lot's of memories; however, more importantly is seeing how great A&C's pacing had been.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate, March 18 2004
Mr. Bocelli was fine and I especially enjoyed his rendition of Nessum Dorma. I thought the interspaced vinettes are not particularly interesting and detracted somewhat from his performances. Ms. Brightman also seemed to have some slight pitch issues, but these I thought are very minor.

The problem is this dvd only uses Dolby 2.0 and it really does not do any justice to the Mr. Bocelli and his friend's vocal abilities nor the performances of the orchestra... it all sounds a bit flat.
I would recommend renting this first.

4.0 out of 5 stars UNLESS..., March 16 2004
As a child I loved the Lorax for the simple rhymes and laughed at the comical little Lorax standing up to the might of the Once-ler. I think from the standpoint that it is fun and interesting ryhme ranks it right up around the four stars mark because it got young children to read.
As an adult, I find the stance that the Lorax make for accountability to be a valuable lesson that adults can relate to children in explaining this story.
What I really like and thought it was well conveyed (despite the very dated background music and the liberal rewording to extend the poem) is that final stanza where Dr. Suess, through the Once-ler, lets us know that even with all the problems there is… Read more
