Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis are Back at It in the New 6-DVD Collection from Mill Creek Entertainment - A Must Have for Fans of This Legendary Comedic Duo (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Growing up, I used to love watching Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis on television with my Dad.  Whenever he would get home from working a police detail, he would look to unwind and this legendary comedic duo was always his go-to entertainment.  He had recorded some of his favorite Colgate Comedy Hour episodes on VHS tapes, and we would pop one in and watch it while he ate his dinner.  Oh, how I loved that time with him, laughing and having fun.  You couldn't watch these two guys without walking away with a smile on your face.  Their stage presence is nothing that I have seen duplicated, as they had chemistry like no other comedians that came after them.  It didn't matter if they were performing for a television show, on stage or in a movie, you knew when you saw these two together or solo that you were going to be in for a fun night of laughs.

When I heard about this new 6-DVD collection from Mill Creek Entertainment, I had to tell my Dad as I knew he would be excited, and that he was.  He asked if I was getting a copy to review, and if not, he would buy so that when he and my Mom come to visit us, he would brig so we could watch some of the episodes together.  I told them I was being sent a copy and that I would be looking forward to dinner and a movie with him. :-)

I received this DVD along with a few other February releases from Mill Creek Entertainment, and couldn't wait to start watching them.  Even though I plan to watch these DVDs with my Dad, I had to relive some of my favorite Martin and Lewis memories.  I was surprised my husband had never seen them perform together.  He knew about and saw the Jerry Lewis telethons, but never knew these two comedic geniuses worked together.  So, I spent our date night last week sharing some of my favorite Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis episodes from the 6-DVD collection with him.  And, I am happy to report there is a new Dean and Lewis fan in our house. :-)  We can't wait for Friday to get here so that we can watch more of the DVDs, and laugh until our belly's hurt. :-)  

If you are a fan of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and grew up watching the perform on television and in movies, then you will want to pick up this new 6-DVD set to add to your collection.
