    5.0 out of 5 stars I'm alone, i'm alone, i'm alone, i'm alone..... September 13, 2007
    By J.Gill
    Format:DVD
    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?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought it November 11, 2007
    By Marie
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars John Candy April 6, 2008
    Format:DVD
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT COMEDIAN March 3, 2009
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    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.

    Two of the three movies are fantastic. It was worth the price alone for Uncle Buck and the Great Outdoors.

    5.0 out of 5 stars John Candy February 25, 2009
    By 2boys
    Format:DVD
    This pack of DVD's are so hilarious. My husaband and I love the older movies b/c they are so much better than the new releases. John Candy is so funny in all three but our favorites are Uncle Buck and the Great Outdoors, but Going Berserk is also very funny. Definatley worth the money.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Huge Laughs March 4, 2014
    By Michael
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck are Disc 1, Going Berserk on Disc 2.
    Using a BluRay Player so picture quality is excellent and in fullscreen, sound is great and clear as well. For the price its a deal for all 3, but just like you I'd pay more for a full collection JC movies.
