"This is a great DVD that will have you roaring out loud with laughter! My husband and I watched this dvd on our portable dvd player while flying home from Hawaii on a night flight. I had to do all I could do to contain myself from not laughing too loudly so I wouldn't disturb some of the passengers who were trying to sleep. You will not be disappointed in this DVD."
The Best "Reality" TV Out There

"When I saw this DVD at my local Cracker Barrel, I hesitated to purchase it - but only briefly. I can still remember laughing until I cried when I watched this show as a child and I'm happy to say that decades later, I laugh just as I hard when I pop this baby into my DVD player. In fact, I've watched it a couple of times and I'm STILL laughing!
Only Alan Funt perfected the art of granting us the opportunity to "watch people being themselves". He did this by placing people in various, unexpected situations that were either comical, crazy, or even at times "Twilight Zone-ish". The comedy results as we watch the unsuspecting performers as they react to their respective situations. Some of my personal favorites: the talking horse; the motorless vehicle; the stenographer; the talking mailbox; the sideways elevator; and a host of other snippets that had me laughing so hard my sides ached.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Candid Camera, this isn't just another one of "America's Funniest Home Videos". There are no scenes of motorcycle or three-wheeler wipe-outs, no one falls 8 or 10 feet off a stage or anything else, and you won't see anyone puking on screen, either. Candid Camera is fresh, innovative, funny, and wonderfully lacking in anything that could be deemed offensive or disgusting.
Another unique addition to this DVD is several interviews with young children. "Out of the Mouths of Babes" is never without its charm - and with Alan Funt as the interviewer, it's even more endearing. I'm sure that this DVD will keep me laughing for years to come."
Can't wait to get this.

"I have been waiting for what's turned out to be a year for Rhino to release this DVD because I didn't want to buy the huge (and expensive) box set. Allen Funt was one of my heroes growing up and it sounds like this DVD has his prime material, at a bargain price. This show still beats the hell out of any of today's reality shows, none of which have a genius at the level of Mr. Funt at the helm."
To Much Chatter, Not Enough Clips

"This box set is a waste of time and money. It's no secret Allen Funt liked the sound of his own voice and loved seeing himself on TV -- and that's mostly what you get with this stingy Candid Camera box set: Funt's endless explanations of what you are about to see, why it's funny and how influential the show was. His son Peter is easier to take but if you've got good footage, why do you need a host at all? Why do you need expensive sets and wardrobes if all you're doing is introducing clips? You'll find yourself fast-forwarding past all the boring chatter (Pam Dawber expounding on why she likes Candid Camera, for instance) for just a handful of clips, and very few of the really classic ones. I recommend the newer generation Candid Camera called Just For Laughs (no hosts, no long set-ups, more gags per minute). Peter Funt HAS great film in the Candid Camera archives, but with this tiresome format don't expect to see much of it."
