John Candy At His Best Posted by: from: on After Uncle Buck, Great Outdoors is probably John Candy's best film. It's just hilarious all the way around. Nobody did was John Candy did...and still can't. He was funny without resorting to "look at me, I'm fat. That means I'm funny, right ?" like Melissa McCarthy has. I'm so glad that this finally came to blu-ray, though since it is/was an exclusive, it was REALLY hard to get my hands on. But I'm glad I did. The only bad thing about this blu-ray is that there are basically no bonus features. I can understand not having a commentary by John Candy, since he's passed on, but it would have been good to get some of the other actors to do one. But I can't really complain. I mean, you get the movie in just about pristine quality. LOVE this movie...

Classic Summer Movie Posted by: from: on Grew up watching this movie every summer - tradition in my family. Very entertaining movie - my favorite John Candy movie in fact. Good movie for the family. The jump in video quality is not a huge difference from the dvd version it seems. Also a few more bonus features could have been included with this movie.

Finally! Posted by: from: on I have been waiting years for this to be released to Blu-ray. The transfer quality is pretty good. Always been one of my favorite movies. Great story for anyone of all ages, John Hughes and John Candy were the best!

Comedy Giants in fine form. Posted by: from: on Akroyd & Candy are pitch-perfect in this classic 80s summer comedy. I wore out my VHS cassette of THE GREAT OUTDOORS as a kid, and am thrilled to have a cheap, hi-def replacement for it in my library now.

Great movie Posted by: from: on I always wanted to get the great outdoors but could never find it available anywhere. When I saw this in my local Bestbuy I had to pick it up. I was alittle disappointed to find no additional content above the movie but with the cost I paid the movie itself is worth it.
