Y'all were crazy back then...

"This DVD had me rollin! I really dug the Cupid's list segment about 'what to do on a date' as well as the segment about 'the perversion of youth.' What's funny about the DVD is seeing and hearing how people thought and spoke back then. You can't help quoting lines from the DVD with your friends after watching it. What's scary about the 'What were we thinking?!' DVD is seeing how much of the fears and thinking of the 50's still applies today. Think what would happen if Leave it to Beaver's mom caught him with a porno mag or a joint and you get a good idea of what this DVD is about. Funny stuff."
Too Much Like Real Life

"My son picked this up for me as a joke. The jokes on him!
I actually remember seeing some of these films! And I remember
believing everything they said! When I started watching I didn't
know whether to laugh or cry. I'd completely forgotten sitting
in the church basement watching "health" films. What Were
We Thinking indeed! My son couldn't believe that these films
were for real. He laughed himself sick. I could only shake
my head and wonder. So if you want to know what your parents
REALLY thought about sex, love and marriage (not to mention the
dangers of drugs and what happens to "loose women") spend a few
dollars to see the original propaganda. It's a miracle any of
us from that generation turned out normal!"

"Probably the best inexpensive holiday gift I've ever received or given. What is it about the fifties that's so darn funny? I gave a copy to my mom, to my older co-workers, and to my college age brother. Everyone loved it, though for various reasons."
