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

The perfect companion for all film enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

I had forgotten how unbelievably funny Steve Martin used to be, especially in the eighties.

This wonderfully lighthearted take on those '50s mad scientist science fiction films is equal parts silly and absurd. Reiner seems to understand Martin's talent for physical comedy and mimicry really well and uses it to its fullest extent.

The film balances the wonderfully bizarre and an engaging plot really well and it caught me in fits of uncontrollable laughter more often than not.

This has to be Martin's best film or close to, its such a shame he never really did anymore off the wall flicks like this. There is so much that works here, so many little gags and visual nuggets that are admittedly so daft (the very quick human pinball scene) you just can't help but like it (unless you dislike Steve Martin's style of course). Its rude crazy and predictable (with a brief bit of in your face racism!) but for me it truly works.

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!

The man with two brains

Twice as boring

Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr (Steve Martin) has a problem choosing between brain waves, Anne Uumellmahaye (Sissy Spacek), and "Body Heat", Dolores Benedict (Kathleen Turner). The whole premise is can love be found in a bottle.

I thought `The jerk' was bad until I saw this movie, both mysteriously directed by Carl Reiner. All he does is make faces with no real acting or thought behind them. A few faces are o.k. but over an over of watching grins and grimaces can get monotonous. I almost stopped watching Steve martin that is capable of making good movies like "Housesitter" (1992) with Goldie Hawn.

My Blue Heaven

"Take my keys, take my gun, take me"

I am not going to go in to details, of the movie "My Blue Heaven"; however the story line is about Vinni, (Martin), as a New York City gangster enrolled in the witness protection program. He is sent to a seemingly innocent town, Fryberg. A FBI agent (Rick Moranis) is assigned to look after him. The agent is a recent ex-husband due to his overly systematic behavior.

While attempting to keep Vinni out of trouble the agent meets an interesting district attorney (Joan Cussak). She also is an ex with two kids. Vinni seizes the opportunity to help the agent and the attorney gets to know each other better and in the process helps Barney the agent loosen up a bit. On the side he seizes much more with the help of his (old) new friends. Will anything come of the agent/attorney relation ship? Will Vinni find a home or is he destined for incarceration?

See Steve Martin a little more down to earth as n architect in "Housesitter" (1992).

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.

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.

Steve Martin can be forgiven for all the above dross, cos of this and The Jerk

Very very funny film - quite daft,of course

Kathleen Turner's finest hour until she became Chandler's dad in Friends.

The underrated David Warner is excellent

A real must-see

This film is funny. Not just a little bit funny, but really really funny. Steve Martin is absolutely on top form in 'The man with two brains', and aswell as 'The Jerk', is my favourite Steve Martin film.

The Man With Two Brains is based around the life of a pioneering brain surgeon named Dr. Hfuhruhurr (Steve Martin), who is renowned for inventing a method known as 'cranial screw-top' brain surgery.
Lovesick, due to the loss of his wife, on the way home from work he accidently runs over a gold-diging femme fatale named Dolores Benedict (Kathleen Turner), and foolishly, unable to see her sly, and malicious plan to rob him of his money, falls in love with her, and shortly after, they marry.

Soon after they wed, Dr. Hfuhruhurr meets another scientist named DR. Alfred Necessiter (David Warner) at a conference in Vienna, who claims he has discovered a scientific breakthrough that will change the face of the earth forever. Dr. Hfuhruhurr agrees to visit him at his house later that evening, and soon discovers that his life as he previously knew it, is about to change forever, due to the fact that he becomes completely and utterly enfactuated by a bottled brain (Voice over - Sissy Spacek) that can only communicate with him, and no one else!

Director Carl Reiner and Steve Martin (frequent collaborators) have managed to cram this film full to the brim of wacky, bizarre and completely outlandish ideas. The back-drops and sets to this film are really great (look out for the set of Dr. Alfred Necessiter's house), and the great directorial skills of Carl Reiner, bring this film together, and manage to create a superb, well-crafted finished piece.
