    Am I the only one that picked this title up? Doing a search revealed a thread about the lead character (Wendell Tyvett) ending up doing porno movies.

    The jerk of the film (Leigh McCloskey .... Charles 'Chas' Lawlor II) is interviewed not on the disc, but with an insert inside the case. Really funny interview, he's really embarrassed by the movie. And threatens the interviewer if he brings up "Hamburger: The Motion Picture"

    Video and audio look good for a really low budget film. And at $9.99, couldn't pass it up.

    I can't say that I picked this title up, but I will say that Joe and Mother rule!

    I'm still kicking myself for not picking up "Hamburger: The Motion Picture" on laserdisc for $14.99 a couple years back; is that ever coming out on DVD??

    I love Fraternity Vacation, but am having a hard time finding it. Maybe I'll have to pay WOW! a visit.

    Well I picked this up today as I am a Tim Robbins fan since, The Player, Shawshank Redmetion and Hudsucker Proxy, so I got a copy, but have yet to watch it yet.

    Okay, I watched this movie again, this afternoon, and the transfer is pretty darn good.

    They must have had great source elements

    I got a copy of this tonight at Best Buy and screened it, damn do I love those 80s B films. A friend and I just died laughing all 95 minutes.

    I may actually work on a replacement coverart for it too.
