"This is a great DVD. 3 great movies on one DVD and one great price.
2 out of 3 of these are at the top of my favorites list, and no matter
how many times I've seen them I still enjoy them.
The Money Pit. Anyone who has bought an older home and discovered what
a fixer upper is or leads to, can really relate to this movie. They can
probably relate to everything except having the money to do such a fixup, and hopefully most people have not had relationships with someone as shallow and conceited as the meistro, the wife's former boyfriend.
Next comes The Burbs. What happens when you don't know how to take a
vacation anymore and all your friends also have lost that ability and do not know what to do with themselves!
The answer, Become your own Neighborhood Watch group.
Just hope that you don't have neighbors like the Klopaks.
Lastly Dragnet, where Tom teams up with Dan Aykroid as Joe Friday's son.
A great comic redo of a show that maybe was a little too serious, a
little tongue in cheek, and yet had everyone watching.
For a few good nights of something to give you a laugh and let you know
things could always be worse, pick up this DVD!
Good Clean Fun!

"Just good clean fun. That's what The Money Pit movie is all about. In an age of movies where everything seems to have to be sexually explicit or totally raunchy to be funny, this clean movie is a reminder of what true comedy is. Though it deals with a quiet adult theme (man and woman trying to keep a relationship together after a "possible" affair - don't want to give up the secret) it is packed full of funny scenes that will make kids and adults laugh time after time. I bought this movie just the other day and though I saw it when it came out years ago it was just as funny. My girlfriend who never saw it got a new laugh out of it too. Highly recommended for anyone who likes humor and for families that want a movie that is just good clean fun. I bought this one primarily for the Money Pit, but the Burbs is funny too. I probably would not have bought Dragnet if it hadn't come as part of the package here as I found it pretty flat comically speaking."
