Comedy's Dirtiest Dozen/Heavyweights of Comedy

Overview

The Eclectic DVD release of the 1970s time capsule Tunnelvision proves that bad taste and self-consciously outrageous comedy was invented long before the debut of the Fox television network. Set in the not too distant future, Tunnelvision uses the concept of a renegade TV station as a springboard for a series of short skits lampooning TV shows, commercials, and news programs. Full of bad language and "shocking" statements against political, spiritual, sexual, and racial sacred cows, this now painfully unfunny ...

Overview

The Eclectic DVD release of the 1970s time capsule Tunnelvision proves that bad taste and self-consciously outrageous comedy was invented long before the debut of the Fox television network. Set in the not too distant future, Tunnelvision uses the concept of a renegade TV station as a springboard for a series of short skits lampooning TV shows, commercials, and news programs. Full of bad language and "shocking" statements against political, spiritual, sexual, and racial sacred cows, this now painfully unfunny movie received surprisingly strong reviews in its day. The movie hasn't aged very well, and it's now more useful as sociological tool for understanding post-Watergate America in the 1970s than as entertainment (though ironic anti-humor fans will probably enjoy laughing at all the jokes that fall flat). Eclectic has released the movie in a pan-and-scan version only, though it actually pops into widescreen for a few frames here and there. Likewise, the sound is flat and a bit muddy, but the overall technical merits of the movie itself are weak enough to make this point negligible. Star spotters will have fun looking for Howard Hesseman and future cast members of Saturday Night Live and SCTV, while other viewers may want to check out the DVD releases of Kentucky Fried Movie and The Groove Tube instead.
