Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Best of Dan Aykroyd is a 60-minute compilation of highlights from the first five years of TV's Saturday Night Live. As indicated by the title, the emphasis is on the multitalented Dan Aykroyd. Arguably, Aykroyd's most memorable solo routine is his glib-tongued "Bass-o-matic" pitch; the collection's biggest laughgetter is Aykroyd's "Two wild and crazy guys" bit with Steve Martin. Best of Dan Aykroyd was assembled under the watchful eye of SNL mentor Lorne Michaels.
