The greatness of any comedy team is completely dependent on the straight man. Without the likes of Bud Abbott, Dick Smothers and David Spade tirelessly and expertly prodding, sighing and bantering then Lou Costello, Tommy Smothers and Chris Farley would never have been able to rake in the laughs by ...

It's a light week on the DVD front but at least the entry is the goofy, perfectly enjoyable "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone."
