  • It's good, clean and funny. But in their zest to cram in as many pratfalls and bean balls as they can, the producers concentrate on the mishap and almost never on the aftermath. Everything is edited down to tiny bites. Show More

  • The times may be ripe for featherbrained entertainment, for aggressive escapism. ... I suspect that ... 'America's Funniest Home Videos' may eventually tumble as fast as it soared.
