I've got Soon-Shine, unt a Klow-dy day...
...Pardon my Ludwig van Beethoven cover of The Temps.

So I'm looking for something play on VHS, as I'm going to be watching in a room with only a VCR. The local ma and pa video store's last VHS new release available is over two years old ("The Passion of the Christ"), so I'm stuck looking at old stuff to rent. The owner points me to some tapes he's looking to dump @ $1.99/ea. (the cost of a rental), and I don't even have to return it. What a deal! This is how I happened to rediscover THE BEST OF JOHN BELUSHI, a tape I originally enjoyed when it came out over 20 years ago. And I want to tell you, even though I've seen all these bits before (and several of them multiple times through the years), the laughs still come. Nearly a quarter of a century after Bluto checked out, he's still one of the funniest guys ever to grace us with comedy.

So sit back and just enjoy Joliet Jake, Vito (along with Laraine Newman's hilarious take on "Valley Speak", which pre-dates Moon Zappa's by 5 YEARS!) , Miss Liz Taylor (and her lodged chicken), Samurai Delicatessen, The Thing That Wouldn't Leave, Joe Cocker, and Belushi's Shatner impersonation, perhaps the first real satirical take on Captain Kirk's crappy acting from STAR TREK. It'll have you in stitches. Promise!
