    I can't believe A Little Romance is only two weeks away and its not available for pre-order at DeepDiscountDVD or Amazon. Anyone else have this on order? If so, where and how much $$? Thanks.

    Glad to see Ron is doing a review on this disc. Thank you.

    I've had this title on pre-order with DVD Empire for some time.

    dvdplanet also has it avail for pre-order, but it's really odd not to see jacket art for it on Digital Bits, nor pre-order info on Amazon or DDD.

    hopefully, if Ron has a date specified for posting the review this means he actually has the disc in hand.

    dvdplanet has it for under $14- no listing of the exact features though. it should be 2.35 anamorphic though at least.

    i'm kinda of nervous about this one since they never went thru with the announced widescreen laserdisc release.
    i've been waiting over 10 years to own this on a decent oprtical format in its OAR.

    It's January 2 and still not available at DeepDiscountDVD, Barnes and Noble, Amazon or Best Buy.com. What is up with this? I realize this is not a major release, but I can't believe it's so hard to find a place to preorder it besides DVD Empire or DVD Planet.

    I've fired off an email to Warner to see if there is anything they can do.

    Any updates as to whether or not this title shipped by the release date? At first DVD Planet showed it "In Stock". Now it is "Out of Stock".

    Okay, I've only been waiting for this title since forever. No one lists it as being in stock. Anyone have any clue as to what's going on with this dvd?

    wish i knew, Fred.
    i had hoped to pre-order this weeks ago because i knew i wouldn't be able to find it today.
    went to CC, BB, Borders, Media Play...even FYE (ugh) anyway- and of course, not a one on the shelf.
    Surprisingly, when i talked to the person at Borders who looked it up, they never mentioned anything about it being due in today. they only offered to special order it.
    WTF?
    still not showing up on DDD.

    very disappointed as this is the first big title i've been looking forward to this year.
    obviously the disc exists, since DVDauthority has also reviewed it.

    looks like i'll be waiting a few more weeks at least.
    arrgghh

    Call me crazy, but this all sounds familiar. Seems to me I remember the same disappearing act happening with the LD release about 5 or 6 years ago.

    DVDPlanet.com and DVDEmpire.com show as having it in stock and mine was shipped today. The disc does exist.

    I've sent an email to WarnerBros explaining to them that very few stores and websites have it listed. I also asked them to boost their publicity for the title. I've had no reply so far.

    Thanks and good luck!

    Amazon have it up - there are two entries under DVD when you do a search - the one without the actors names is the one to click on.

    Has anyone pre-ordered, or even ordered this title and received it or at least received a shipping confirmation? I ordered it from dvdplant.com because they were one of two sites listing it as "In Stock". Now they list it as "Out of Stock", as does dvdempire.com, and there is no evidence of my order having shipped. Does anyone have any news on this title?

    Same here! It seems that the disc is being held-up for some reason (maybe because of the sites not listing it, may be Warner's are holding it back until they do?).

    In other words - I have no idea...

    I'm gonna get my Diane Lane fix with "Unfaithful" this weekend instead. It's so funny to see her in such a great (and sexy) role a full 23 years after her debut as a sweet young girl in "A Little Romance".

    I hope she gets the Oscar and Golden Globe's now she's been nominated. I'd love to see her win a BIG award for her work and career.

    If anyone receives their copy of "...Romance" please let us know here. Thanks.
