'Decade of Bloopers' not all that funny

    “”Decade of Bloopers,”” hosted by the always annoying, sometimes idiotic Puck, is definitely the weaker of the two DVDs. Focusing almost exclusively on bodily functions and nakedness of all sorts, the DVD never emerges from the extremely low standards set by its host.

    Making matters worse, even those who enjoy low standards will be disappointed by this disc due to its extreme overuse of blurred pixels and beeps to mask genitalia, swear words, corporate logos and even strangers’ faces. Also, the DVD suffers from the same extra content and technical problems as its cousin, “”The Real World You Never Saw: Chicago.””

    The only savior for “”Bloopers,”” which chronicles 10 years of “”The Real World”” broadcasts in terms of moral low points, are the occasional comic gems that shine in its base bucket of filth and the few featurettes that sport a slight bit of intelligent humor. Veteran “”Real World”” fans will also appreciate the DVD’s scope; it packs clips from all 10 seasons prior to the most recent in Chicago. Most notably, the DVD is an excellent showcase for cast clowns Melissa of the New Orleans season and Mike of the New York season. The second DVD is sure to leave some viewers wondering where to find these two oddball personalities on the comedy circuit.

    “”Decade of Bloopers”” is like a badly assembled greatest hits album from a high-quality artist and should be purchased as such; only extreme “”Real World”” fans should feel mandated to add this disc to their collection.
