Excellent review.

I have ordered this for pick-up at my local Barnes & Noble. 

I have as much fun storing and organizing my DVD's as with any other aspect, so here's a question:  do you think this DVD should be stored with other 'satires', or with other 'straight comedies'?

It definitely straddles the line, but I would tip the scales in the favor of "satire".

Ken, thanks for the great review!  My own copy has been pre-ordered from Deep Discount, which was selling it for less than a Hamilton.  Definitely a great price (but one that reflects the bare bones nature of the disc).

I'd be curious to hear why Andy was ultimately not included as a bonus feature after WHV hinted at his participation in an earlier chat.  I suspect his health may be at play here.  He's always seemed very proud of this movie.

This is a key release for me....I've been waiting years for it.

Now, if they would release "The Flim Flam Man", that would just about complete me.
