A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this series includes some segments that they might find inappropriate for kids. Most potentially objectionable bits involve using body parts for laughs (for example, a busty woman in a bikini sings the national anthem and moves her breasts to the music). Anything truly questionable is blurred.

What's the story?
NBC's half-hour laugh fest MOST OUTRAGEOUS MOMENTS features outtakes from amateur home videos, as well as clips from popular talk shows, newscasts, and sitcoms in which the characters are caught on tape doing silly stunts and messing up their lines. The clips run the gamut from a bride whose veil gets caught in the door of a car and is yanked off as the car pulls away from the curb, to a clip of Jerry Springer's cell phone ringing as the talk-show host is interviewing a guest.
Is it any good?
Unlike America's Funniest Home Videos, most of the clip subjects here are in on the joke and just as likely to laugh at themselves as the viewer is to laugh at them. So aside from occasional raunchy humor (one home video shows a man with his pants down playing the guitar with his genitals), if you like blooper-style laughs, Most Outrageous Moments offers a lot of fun for the whole family. Kids are guaranteed to laugh at the goofy goings on, and parents will enjoy taking a walk down memory lane when clips from programs like The Cosby Show and The Dean Martin Show appear.
