If you're not really an Abbott & Costello fan, there's not much chance
of this documentary making you one. Not because the team isn't funny or
didn't make very funny movies (except towards the end of their career),
but because this is a grating, annoying, almost completely incompetent
piece of dreck that gives you virtually no insight as to why the two
were so wildly popular, and the braying, obnoxious narration of Jack E.
Leonard--an aggressive, tenth-rate nightclub "insult" comic in the Don
Rickles tradition but without an iota of Rickles' talent--sinks
whatever slight potential this dud may have had. Leonard sounds more
like he's auditioning for a nightclub gig than narrating a documentary;
much of his "narration" consists of stupid puns and unfunny "jokes"
delivered at his trademark machine-gun pace, which is completely
inappropriate for this kind of movie. There's not much background
information given on the team, which is just one example of the
sloppiness and carelessness that characterizes this film. Another one
is the fact that the clips that are shown aren't in any particular
order, so you get no sense of the progression of the team's career,
and, if I recall correctly, little or no mention is made of the battles
they had that would result in their going for months without speaking
to each other (and, in the cases of "The Time of Their Lives" and
"Little Giant," arrange it so they had few scenes together). If you're
an Abbott & Costello fan you won't find out anything you didn't already
know about them from this annoying and incompetent mess. If you're not
an A&C fan, then go out and rent some of their early (which are also
their funniest) films, or get what is generally considered to be their
absolute best movie: "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" from 1948.
You'll learn a lot more about the team from those pictures than you
will from this dog.
