We gave it a B

Aside from being the sort of thing every discerning person would love to hate, this new compilation of camcorder slapstick derived from the America’s Funniest Home Videos TV series fall squarely into the Flogging a Dead You-Name-It category. The thing is, most of the material on this tape is genuinely funny. True, Funniest Pets starts getting a little repulsive during the deer-sneezing-on-small-children-at-the-petting-zoo section, and several other segments will have you thinking dark thoughts about the sorts of people who are allowed to have cats and dogs these days. Unfortunately, host Bob Saget can get cloying quickly, and the fact remains that no matter how hard you laugh (and you will laugh), you’ll feel bad about it later. B
