    I am almost ashamed to admit my affection for this movie, but it is a definite guilty pleasure.

    Very cool news. This is one of the most underrated comedies I've ever seen. I've loved it since its theatrical release and I'm happy to see that it will earn some more attention upon its DVD release.

    THIS is the Robin Williams I love!
