I'm alone, i'm alone, i'm alone, i'm alone.....

"I don't even know how I came across it or why, but one of my favorite movies of all time is John Candy's 'Going Berserk'. I'm sure not many people remember this one since it probably got limited release, but it's packed with non-stop comedic genius.

John Candy, along with fellow SCTV alumni, Joe Flaherty and Eugene Levy star in this 1983 comedy centered around 'regular joe' John Bourgignon,(Candy)who's about to marry Nancy Reese, a congressman's daughter. Days before the wedding, John, who makes his living between drumming and limo driving, is hypnotized by one of his fare's, a big time cult leader, Rev. Sun Yi Day. The reverend plans to have John kill his 'would be' father-in-law, Ed Reese, on his wedding day, but John doesn't take to the mind control and begins to act like a moron whenever subliminally prompted to kill.

One of Candy's best comedic works of all time! If you like those classic 80's comedies, you won't wanna miss this one. 'Uncle Buck' and 'The Great Outdoors' are what most people will be getting this set for, but for me, it's 'Going Berserk'. Love it!! Oh and wait till you get to the 'I'm alone' part. Well, shucks, I guess every guys been there, huh?"
Glad I bought it

"I bought this set because of the reviewer who said that "Going Berserk" was the funniest John Candy movie. I didn't know anything about this movie, but took his word for it. I'm glad I did. It's hysterical - the big plus is that Eugene Levy's comedic genius is equally evident in this film - I have been chuckling about his "anger problem" ever since I watched it last week. The video-ing of the wedding is not all that far off from some of the wedding videos I've been forced to watch - very very funny movie."
Great White

"I never thought that I'd acknowledge (much less type a favorable review of) a multi-feature DVD set, but this one is worth checking out if you're a fan of the big man or the '80s in general - a time when many mainstream comedies were actually funny.

While the Hughes productions "The Great Outdoors" and "Uncle Buck" are more than familiar to me, I'd never even heard of "Going Berserk" before picking through this collection. It's actually a pretty fun comedy, one that I can recommend. "The Great Outdoors" is among the less substantial John Hughes movies (mostly because he didn't direct it), but it has a lot of hilarious moments and is worth seeing just to marvel at Dan Akroyd's reprehensible wardrobe. "Uncle Buck" is Hughes and Candy at their very best, and unfortunately, their last; Hughes never directed another commercially successful film after this one, and despite a convincing dramatic performance in "Only the Lonely" and supporting parts in a number of successful films, Candy never enjoyed another popular lead role.

While all of the films in this set are presented in their theatrical widescreen aspect ratios, they lack scene selection menus. If these are an essential feature for you, you may want to buy these features separately."
