From Amazon.co.uk

Meet Dr Michael Hfuhruhurr (Steve Martin), the famous brain surgeon. Perhaps the name is not unfamiliar, though it is unpronounceable; the good doctor is the inventor of the celebrated "screw-top" method of brain surgery, in which the top of the skull twists off as easily as the lid of a pickle jar. The man may be a medical genius, but his talent for love leaves something to be desired, which explains his marriage to a gold-digging vixen (Kathleen Turner). Ah, but Dr. Hfuhruhurr may yet find true love, in the form of the disembodied brain he discovers in the lab of a mad scientist--David Warner, gone the Frankenstein route. (Lovely image: Hfuhruhurr in a rowboat, taking the brain out for a romantic ride on the lake.) Thus, in its own utterly goofy way, does The Man with Two Brains delve into the eternal dilemma of male indecision: does a man fall in love with a woman's body, or with her mind? Along the way, of course, there are gags both highbrow and very, very lowbrow, a mind-body split that might be why critics have tended to prefer the more sophisticated slapstick of All of Me (directed, like this film, by Carl Reiner) and Roxanne among the early Steve Martin outings. Still, this is one of Martin's funniest pictures, and a game Kathleen Turner, fresh off her Body Heat success, ably spoofs her own sultry image. The cerebral love object is voiced by Sissy Spacek. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars the funniest comedy ever 23 Mar 2004
Format:DVD
This film is simply hilarious. Why? Because right from the very start we are drawn into a world of the sublimely ridiculous. Steve Martin and others act the part brilliantly. The jokes are the zaniest and most urinatingly funny you will ever see. This is a classic film and has been overlooked by many. You will not regret buying this film if you love silly and crazy humour. It is the kind of film to watch with a new girlfriend and laugh yourselves stupid!

4.0 out of 5 stars Often a very funny film 1 April 2011
Format:DVD
I've wanted to really like this movie but previously it's not clicked with me. I thought it started good but lost steam after the first half hour, and then dragged on with too few jokes too far apart. There was a lack of forward motion to it which annoyed and bored me. I considered it to be an overrated dud with some signs of quality here and there.

This time, for no obvious reason, it clicked with me. I found it to be engaging from the start to the very end. Perhaps it worked this time because I was paying proper attention to the "dramatic" story and not just thinking of it as an excuse they were using to string some jokes along?

It's a gloriously silly film and Steve Martin is excellent. It really is a puzzle how he stopped being funny from about the early 90s onwards (a very notable exception being the brilliant Bowfinger in 1999)?

The film could certainly be better (quicker pace, more jokes, nicer visuals) but it's good enough for some easy laughs. Not a masterpiece but a good film.

5.0 out of 5 stars comedy at its best. 31 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is steve martin at his best.
My blue heaven is a good family film, where as the man with two brains is a little more adult in style.
Either way steve martin is brilliant, and the sopporting cast in both films are good.
A must have for any dvd collection.
10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ready the bone wax... 27 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
Recently widowed Doctor Michael Hfuhruhurr, the world's greatest neurosurgeon, injures Dolores Benedict in a car accident.

He operates on her and saves her life using a technique of his own invention: cranial screw-top brain entry. As Benedict recovers, Hfuhruhurr falls in love with her and they are soon married.

However, Benedict is only interested in Hfuhruhurr's money and he still yearns for his previous wife.

They travel to Vienna to attend a medical conference where Hfuhruhurr finally divorces Dolores, meets a mysterious Doctor, and becomes entangled in a serial killer hunt....

It's certainly is a random movie, from beginning to end, it never fails to surprise with all the very silly, but funny sight gags, and the hilarious one liners.

Everything gets thrown into the mix, from brains on rowing boats, to suction hands, to paper doors, but the writers and director, keep the narrative in check, and the story consistent.

It's not for all tastes, and I could understand why this is a love or hate movie, because its so ahead of its time, and so offbeat, that I wouldn't be surprised if Monty Python confessed during their reunion to writing this.

Martin is as good as always, Turner has never been better, and it's the kind of film you find something different in every single viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve martin at his best 21 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant film, should be right up there with Young Frankenstein really, terrific performances from all, and clever plot and dialogue from start to finish. Should have won oscars for best fictional character names and elevator jokes. Brilliant.

This film has lost none of it's humour over time. Might not appeal to everyone but that's their problem. It arrived very quickly and well packaged.
