    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


    "Two thumbs up! Very funny." -- SISKEL & EBERT

    "Sassy, brassy and full of mischief. Down-dirty hilarious."
    -- Bob Strauss, LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS

    ************************************************** *****************
    BOOTY CALL: THE BOOTIEST EDITION
    ************************************************** ******************
    Debuts on DVD on April 13, 2004

    Culver City, CA (February 2, 2004) -- A planned night of love turned into a
    double date from hell when Jamie Foxx (Upcoming Movie Breaking All The Rules) and
    Tommy Davidson (Bamboozled) attempted to "get close" to their dates, Vivica A. Fox
    (Kill Bill) and Tamala Jones (Two Can Play That Game), in Booty Call. And now, the
    funniest, sexiest urban comedy of the '90s is back and more outrageous than ever in a
    brand new, special deluxe presentation. Booty Call: The Bootiest Edition will premiere
    on DVD on Tuesday, April 13, 2004, from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

    After weeks of dating, Rushon (Tommy Davidson) and Nikki (Tamala Jones)
    think they might be in love. But they know they're in lust. There's just one little problem
    -- Nikki insists on double dating with her best friend Lysterine (Vivica A. Fox) on the
    night Rushon has reserved for romance. So Rushon brings his rude, crude, sex-obsessed
    best boy Bunz (Foxx) to keep Lysty busy, and turns Nikki's double date into a hilarious
    date with disaster.

    Directed by Jeff Pollack and written by Takashi Bufford and Bootsie (aka J.Stanford
    Parker), Booty Call: The Bootiest Edition includes the original film remastered in Hi-
    Definition, a brand new featurette on the making of Booty Call, a previously unseen
    alternate ending, and best of all, a newly-recorded filmmaker commentary that reunites
    the director and writers with stars Jamie Foxx, Vivica A. Fox and Tommy Davidson.

    Booty Call: The Bootiest Edition will be available as a single disc widescreen DVD for
    the SLP of $19.95. See below for a complete listing of the DVD features.

    A brand new DTS version of Annie gets pan and scan only, and other fine movies have their widescreen sides removed, yet a new SE of Booty Call gets 16x9.

    Columbia needs to get their mind right.

    dudes... am I crazy? Is there anything wrong with this edition?

    WHY KNOCK IT???

    Who cares what the movie is, I don't care if it's Steel Magnolias, Leprechaun 69, "Shorty lays Chucky" or other movies I would never buy. The point is getting it right for ALL movies. NO MOVIE deserve to receive the Pan and Crap treatment. CTHE should be praised and encouraged to do this with all movies.

    Yes I get it, you just mean you are shocked that such deserving movies get sh*t treatment, I agree. But let's fight those battles on those grounds, let's not bad mouth a good release based on how we feel about the movie.

    Idle hands or Casablanca all deserve OAR as a minimum and any extras should be appreciated.

    I actually think "Booty Call" is a funny movie. Jamie Foxx cracks me up. and Bernie Mac has a cameo that steals the show.

    My bad, I guess.

    That said, I don't know if I like it enough to OWN it. But it's nice to know there's a Special Edition if I ever DO decide to pick it up.

    oh, and Matt: where is your sig from? I swear I've read that line in a script somewhere..

    I know it seems easy to knock such a silly movie for receiving such an expansive "booty edition", but heck...

    One guy's classic is another guy's crap.

    Did people snicker when you brought home that SE of Killer Klowns from Outer Space? Or UHF? Or Supergirl?

    Do I dig Booty Call? No, not really. But lots of people do, so this SE is for them.

    I only posted the press release because I love the word "Bootiest". [​IMG]

    It's from the Coen Bros. remake of The Ladykillers. Check out the trailer at quicktime.com.

    I didn't mean to insult anyone, but I am frustrated at the the way Columbia has been handling titles lately in regards to OAR. Although I'm upset about other movies getting a bad treatment, all in all I'm glad this movie gets OAR. I just wish that all movies could receive this treatment.

    Yeah, we all should at least praise a studio for
    OAR, no matter the film, and we all should keep ripping
    a studio for MAR, no matter the film.

    I think Booty Call has some funny moments. I might
    buy this one. [​IMG]
