"Neil Simon brought a unique eye for life to stage and screen. Through sharp characters and dialogue, he prodded us - in laughter and tears - to contend with the traits that make us human. Another voice who understood the power of art in our American story now belongs to eternity." Dan Rather

Just one note though, the version of The Sunshine Boys included here is NOT the original with George Burns and Walter Matthau, it is a remake with Peter Falk and Woody Allen. All the other movies were the originals.
The best in this collection is Chapter Two. But, they all deserve as watch.
Each movie has its laugh out loud moments. Some of the movies are bittersweet.
The only drawback is that none of the movies have closed captions. If you are 65 or older you will need to increase the volume.
The movies arrived on time and in great shape.
Recommended because of the reasonable price.
I TRIED TO GET MY MONEY'S WORTH, so finished a few only to find that I wished I hadn't bothered... Waste of LIFE.
I EXPECTED MORE THAN A BUNCH OF VEIN IDIOTS' LIVES. Characters only could be appreciated by people like the characters... DON'T KNOW WHY ANYONE ENJOYS made-up DRAMA w/little comedy.
