    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?

    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.

    Well two out of three ain't bad. I think The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck are fun. Although Going Berserk may have sounded funny on paper, it just doesn't make it. So if you don't have the first two DVDs, the set is still worth the price. Decent family comedies if you are a fan of John Candy. The best of Candy though I still think is Planes, Trains and Automobiles (Those Aren't Pillows Edition). If that had been in this set or even Summer Rental instead of "Going Berserk", and it would be a great set. Decent quality DVDs and fair replayability.

    John Candy's memory and talent are alive in this collection. To relive the 1980's in all of it's still innocent and non-vulgar manner is a tribute to its comedy genius. So glad I bought this but like most movies from this period, the transfer is somewhat grainy. After the holiday season, I watched all three and welcomed 2016 with a smile. God rest his soul.

    John Candy is one of my favorites. This movie package is a bargain. Uncle Buck and The Great Outdoors seem to play all the time on TV but it is Going Berserk that makes the trio. Not sure why it doesn't get the play time but I laugh everytime I watch it and the other 2. Set is even better when watched with family. When I introduced these to my niece(10yrs), she wanted to keep them.

    I saw both "Uncle Buck" and "The Great Outdoors" years ago and remebered them as being quite funny. Well, they still are and it was nice seeing them again. "Going Berserk" on the other hand would not count among my favorite John Cany movies. Kind of silly/stupid. Yet the DVD set was worth the price just for the first two. I know sometimes down the road I will certainly watch them again!

    Going Berserk ("GB")is a little known gem w/John Candy & other Second City guys, esp. Eugene Levy. The lines, the "plot", the actors--are all hysterically funny & over the top throughout.,
    When Candy died shortly before the Oscars, they did a tribute to him, saying they'd show a short clip from a little known film. I knew it'd be this one, & I knew it'd be the clip when Candy holds a bag of groceries with one hand while his co-escapee, to whom he's handcuffed, gets down on the other side of a partly locked door. Funnier to see than to read.
    I've used this to cure people who were terrified of oral surgery the next am--80 mins. of total distraction (the movie, not the wisdom teeth).
    My list of best movies starts w/Animal House, includes GB above, Quick Change, A Fish Called Wanda, Intolerable Cruelty (an eclectic, even haphazard list, granted). Only comedies need apply of course.
