    Anyone else up for this 1981 release with a flip-flop of traditional roles with John Belushi as the staid conventional career man, and Dan Aykroyd as the over the top wacko new neighbor.

    Hello Columbia!!!

    Neighbors is one of my favorites too!
    I would love to see this one on Dvd. I've always been a big John Belushi fan. I picked up 1941 last week at Walmart for $10 even though i had read alot of negative comments about it. I enjoyed it, the disc is loaded with extra features and i think its a great bargin for ten bucks!
    Let's hope Neighbors will be out soon.

    one of my top 10 favorite movies and always on my wish list of DVDs i want. an audio commentary with dan aykroyd would be nice, talking about how he and belushi switched roles before filming and i think i recall belushi had problems in the quicksand scene and almost drowned. I just read the novel it was based on recently and i thought it was quite interesting.

    I'm a major John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd fan and i would love to see Neighbors on dvd. I'm guessing this would be a Columbia title? Has anyone heard rumors about this movie coming out?
    I'm not sure, but i think this is the only John Belushi film not available on dvd yet.
    Any info would be appreciated.

    I think this is one underrated comedy, and I've been wanting to know what's up with its delay, too. It's a Columbia title?

    Some other studios must like it too - I've seen rip-offs of the poster art on a handful of DVD's...

    I've only seen it once or twice, and it struck me somewhat uncomfortable seeing Ackroyd and (especially) Belushi playing against type after the success of The Blues Brothers (although Ackroyd often played manic characters on SNL - especially pitchmen).

    On the subject of Ackroyd...hey Universal, where's Doctor Detroit??

    Looks like NEIGHBORS is out on dvd after all. It's easy to see it's not a legitimate release. Why do people do this and why do people buy it? Personally i wouldn't want to sell something illegal or buy it either.

    one of my top 5 movies ever, i wish this would come out in OAR and have the extended scenes from the TV version and hopefully deleted scenes as supplements.

    I've never seen the Tv version, just the R rated one. What are some of the extended scenes?

    I thought you were referring to "Neighbours" the hideous Australian TV soap...
