Editorial Reviews

From the people who brought you Animal House, Van Wilder & Vacation comes a hilariously twisted look at today’s hottest television phenomenon…REALITY TELEVISION. The wardrobes malfunction on purpose as we present a series of TV pilots so outrageous and controversial that TV networks wouldn’t dare air them. The entire program gives new meaning to the words "REALITY TV." Nothing is too outrageous for these shows whose contestants want their 15 minutes of fame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest laugh out loud comedy I've seen in years January 2, 2005
This DVD had me rolling from beginning to end. This was absolutly hilarious. These are spoofs of 'Reality TV Shows'. Highlights are as follows.....

1. He Said She Said. Guys compete for a lovely Asian girl's affections. Only problem is she has a penis.

2. The Amazing Racist. A dude goes through LA and Watts in a Ku Klux Klan robe. He goes into a convienence store with a wooden cross and tries to buy some lighters. Then he goes to a dry cleaning establishment, calls the guy 'Mr. Jefferson' and tries to get his robe and hood cleaned. Then, still in uniform, he tries to bum gas from people fueling up their cars. In another episode he plays a Jew that sets up a souvenier stand outside a mosque.

3. Don't get caught stealing. Two contestants are told to steal things. Watch a dude run out of the store wearing an Italian suit and steal a car from a car wash.

4. A dude has terminal cancer and wants to document the last days of his life. He tells off his boss then takes a dump on his desk.

5. The Whore. Guys go on blind dates with a prostitute, and when the sex begins your host goes in for an interview. The prostitue is the lovely girl on the DVD cover holding the coconuts.

6. Take that Drug. A great little gameshow

7. Money. Now here's the crown jewel. People on the street are asked to do stuff for money. One guy throws up on the sidewalk and then licks it for $1000. We got a little gay midget and people are paid to kiss him, lick his feet, and suck his toes. During the ending credits a guy is paid to eat in a Mexican restaurant with his date and do a poopy in his pants. And yes we get to see it.

If you've never laughed for one straight hour, then you need to pick this up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please, God, let these STAY lost January 21, 2006
At this time, I am on what you may call a National Lampoon investigation. You may have noticed the makers of classics like Animal House and Vacation are releasing 10 movies a year in hopes to get a hit. So I have been watching their latest films. When I reached Lost Reality, the idea of shows that could never air sounded funny enough.

Oh, it did, my friends, but after watching this, I had many emotions, none good. Disgust, confusion, and...well, more confusion. Is this supposed to be funny? Are these real show ideas compiled by NL? On the box it says there are 'creators' for the film. Creators of the made-up pilots, creators of a show that found horrible show ideas, what? Who can I blame for this travesty?

I know these shows are SUPPOSED to be horrible, horrible shows, but aren't they also supposed to make the viewer laugh? Watching someone drink a liquid that makes you barf to get cash and then lick it up is toe-curling whether it's real or not. It LOOKS real (they're filmed like actual reality shows), so are these twisted people doing this to real people? Take 'The Whore,' where three men are set up with a paid prostitute. Do these men know about this? Who's in on the joke? The reason shows like Punk'd, Candid Camera, or the Jamie Kennedy Experiment are (or in some cases were) funny is because we're in on the joke with Ashton Kutcher and the actors he's using, we know it's Jamie Kennedy, and so on. Also, the gags done are funny. In the excerpt in Lost Reality called 'Casting Couch,' we have a man hiring women for movies and such based on whether or not they will read topless. Are these women aware? Is this man subjecting real (admittedly gullible and stupid) women to this? I somehow managed a chuckle or two, only because I saw what kind of shows they were spoofing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Horrible! November 13, 2004
By The Bus
Oh MY GOD did this movie stink! It wasn't even kind of funny. It's basically a dozen or so so-called "clips" of tv shows that are (supposed to be) just like extreme examples of the reality crud that is on today. Trust me on this one, do NOT watch this! I didn't even watch the whole thing, and of the half of the clips that I did watch, I only watched a portion of them. It was THAT horrible. I'm glad I have a movie pass from blockbuster so I didn't have to shell out $4 to rent this one, because I would have been mad as hell if I did. Absolutely garbage! Total junk. This should be -10 stars at the most! But unfortunately, amazon's lowest rating is 1 star. AVOID THIS LIKE THE PLAGUE!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not quite what it makes itself out to be September 27, 2008
Ok. First off, if you want anything even remotely serious out of your reality shows, don't even think about picking this DVD up. Go look at the more serious (and better) reality shows such as Project Runway.

Still here? Good. The disclaimer aside, I do have to say that most will get their giggles or shock value out of the "shows" presented in this dvd. Why did I say "shows"? Because it's VERY obvious that some of these were never actually a show at all, but rather something cooked up by the National Lampoon staff to fill the gaps in the DVD. Some were quite obviously real, such as the show where they dared people to do things like drink ipecac. Some were quite obviously fake, such as the guy who walked around with a gag erection. When you watch this, you'll see what I mean by which ones were actual reality shows that never made it & which ones weren't. Rather than be real shows, they're satires & parodies of the reality show genre. This however is actually in tune with what National Lampoon previously was when it was a magazine & their specialty still was satire & parody rather than brainless frat fare which seems to be their specialty nowadays.

Even with that, there's still some to enjoy in this DVD. You may wonder where your brain cells went, but you will be entertained. I would honestly recommend renting this first to see if it's anything you would like to own. Some of this is funny, but it's only entertaining for one, MAYBE 2 viewings. Some of it isn't funny at all. Still, it's worth at least one viewing for the entertainment value.
