For some fans of MTV's groundbreaking docudrama series, the highlights of the show are when the ordinary twentysomethings in the cast, as the introduction says, stop being polite--and start being real. Real nasty, that is. This is the tape for the Real World watchers who cheered when Pedro and Puck mixed it up in San Francisco, or looked on in shock as Stephen slapped Irene in Seattle. Nathan of the Seattle cast and Kaneelah from Boston eagerly host these classic fights, as well as a hysterical shouting match between Melissa and Dan in Miami Beach and the historic blanket-pulling incident that got David ejected from the Los Angeles show. Unedited, uncensored fight footage is intercut with new interviews and a running commentary by cast members involved in each conflict. This, along with the split-screen presentation whenever the action heats up, gives each of the tussles a definite sporting air. Unsurprisingly, some fighters (like Dan, interviewed poolside with Flora) seem embarrassed by their past disagreements, some (like Seattle's Stephen) seem more eager just to "set the record straight," and some (like L.A.'s David and Beth) prove more than willing to open old wounds and carry the fight on into the present day. But among the childish displays of bile, outrage, and creative cussing (no bleep-outs here, folks) there are a few surprisingly uplifting moments--particularly when San Francisco's Judd Winick tours his old house and shares memories of his roommate and friend (and impulsive Puck's great nemesis), the late AIDS activist Pedro Zamora. --Grant Balfour

not impressed... Jan 29, 2001
I consider myself a pretty big fan of the Real World, but I wasn't impressed with this video. I thought that it would have a variety of clips from the different seasons and feature a variety of cast members. Instead the producers decided to go really indepth into four particular fights. The most entertaining fight featured on the video was Dan and Melissa's Real World Miami fight because when they had Dan watch the video with Nathan and Flora he made comments like "Oh - look at me. I was such a drama queen." But the other "fights" like Irene and Stephen's battle in Seattle and Tami and David's LA blanket incident had already been re-hashed so many times on the show that I just didn't care about hearing them talk about it AGAIN.
My recommendation - save your money and just watch re-runs of the show on MTV instead.

I love this tape!!!I wish they'd release more like it!! Mar 27, 2008

I know that Sony doesn't make new copies of this tape.I don't even know if a DVD was released for it.I highly recommend it has the four biggest fights of the first 7 seasons uncut and 100% uncensored.The Beth/Tami/David Los Angeles fight was the longest.It runs for about 17 minutes sometimes with 2 cameras showing on the screen to show what everyone was doing.
Stephen/Irene(The slap heard around the world,Seattle):An infamous slap towards slap is exchanged between a mail cast member and female cast member
Dan/Melissa(Miami):A nasty expletive-filled yelling match between 2 Miami Cast members
Beth/Tami/David(Los Angeles):The infamous blanket pull argument uncut and uncensored
Puck/Pedro(San Francisco):The argument between Puck And pedro that sent Puck Packing

Hysterical! Jul 03, 2001
Watching the Real World fights is just pure comedy and great entertainment! It's a mix of an average Jerry Springer Show and the Real World clashed together! What's not to love?

The Best Fights On TV Nov 01, 2000
This DVD is a great addition to the Real World addict or even the novice. Ever wondered why there was so much tension in each house between the cast members, but never pinpointed the exact reason why? This DVD will show you everything that MTV could not show on MTV and even more. It will remind you of all the dysfunctional people on all those daytime talk shows. Go out and order this DVD. Trust me you will not regret it.
GREATEST FIGHTS Jul 19, 2005
By Nichole D. Dillihay
I love this DVD. I watch it almost daily (am I obsessed?). Well, we've seen most of these fights, two of these fighs numerous times on VH1 and other All Access shows. But this DVD gives you the full scenes, uncut and unedited. Kinda gives you a better understanding of what happened, with shots from to different cameras at times. I really liked the Melissa vs. Dan fight and the Tami & Beth vs. David fight. If you're a fan of The Real World, buy this!
