This review is from: John Candy Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This collection is very odd. While it no doubt contains some great movies, two of them at least barely contain John Candy!
'The Blues Brothers' is a great film, however John Candy has about 1% of the screen time. He's around more in the pretty decent 'Brewster's Millions', but he serves as an occasional sidekick to the main character played by Richard Pryor.
As for the other films: 'Uncle Buck' and 'The Great Outdoors' are both pretty good. Uncle Buck has John Candy as the main draw; it's HIS film. The Great Outdoors sees him share the star spot equally with Dan Aykryod.
'Going Berserk', the final film, doesn't meet up to the standard of the other films; it's very poor, with an awful plot. Like Uncle Buck, John Candy is the focus here.
As a set of films then, it's a reasonable collection. As a set of John Candy films... well, you may be left wondering where movies like 'Who's Harry Crumb?' are.
