Going Berzerk is John Candy's best movie, IMHO. It's kind of like his take on The Jerk in a way, a picaresque series of the adventures of a good natured doofus. Haven't seen it in a long time, but I think the opening song was kind of an eighties rap, like the Superbowl Shuffle, that talks about everything that happens in the movie. When it used to play on TV, the TV Guide description was something like "a series of SCTV skits", but it dosen't have that Kentucky Fried movie feel, John Candy plays the same character through most of it. The main part of the plot is a parody of The Manchurian Candidate, but my favorite part is a longish Defiant One's bit. There's also a good movie within a movie called Kung Fu U, which I think may have inspired the old <a href="">Mind Your Manners - With Billy Quan</a> sketch on Almost Live.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
