The Three Stooges Collection Volume Two: 1937-1939 (2008)

Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard did not exactly represent the apex of American comedy. Their short films were crude and obvious and rarely showed any hint of cinematic excellence. And yet they have exuberance and a bald-faced joy that makes them irresistible. Even intellectuals can find themselves laughing at their overblown antics. read more...

Airplane! (1980)

Their brilliant comedy is so totally in check that it almost plays like a straightforward drama; and indeed, quite a bit less hysterical than the airplane disaster movies it spoofs. It has inspired countless knock-offs, notably the use of background nonsense while the foreground is played straight. But, ironically, not a single film made in the 25 years since has captured its same brand of stone-faced hilarity. read more...

Hold That Ghost (1941)

One of Universal's most lucrative properties in the 1940s was the comedy team Abbott and Costello, the epitome of the straight man/funny man team-up. To many, they were just a poor man's version of Laurel and Hardy, who had come from the silent screen as well as the stage, and knew to put artistic pauses in their work. Abbott and Costello merely charged ahead though, hammering away and looking for the next laugh. read more...

The Naked Gun (1988)

In 1982, the creators of Kentucky Fried Movie (1977) and Airplane! (1980), Jerry Zucker, David Zucker and Jim Abrahams, created a television show, "Police Squad!" It was a half-hour comedy, a spoof of cop shows, totally deadpan and without a laugh track. It lasted six episodes, presumably because people thought they were watching an actual bad cop show rather than a comedy. read more...
