    Sweet.

    I've heard quite a bit about this film, but have never seen it. I never thought it would make it to DVD in a million years.

    Put me down for a copy!

    (Since this is a DVD announcement, perhaps it should be moved to Software?)

    Shouldn't this be in the Software section?
    Going Down The Road is a Canadian classic.
    It's not the best film I've ever seen (not by a long shot) but watching it always brings back memories of my childhood.
    And who can ever forget the SCTV skit based on the movie.
    "So whaddaya wanna do?"
    "Let's go to Yonge Street" (cue the repetitious music)
