    As the header says is there any release date for Jumping Jack Flash with Whoopie Goldberg for DVD?

    I have fond memories of this movie,

    I would have to buy a copy if it was released on DVD.

    Fox have just announced it for the 1st June priced at around $14.98. Both widescreen and full screen releases will be included, although only trailers will be included extras wise. Artwork is over on our site.

    Yeah! Finally! I've been waiting for this one for a while.

    I really wish they were some special features, but at least we're getting an anamorphic widescreen transfer.

    Took a look at the coverart at DVDAnswers.com--I don't really care for it though.

    I will probably buy it and thanks for releasing it.

    Wish the cover art was the original, loved that cover. Ah well.

    The cover art be damned. The real issue is whether they did a nice job with the disc. And the answer is: Yes!

    This is one of my wife's pet favorites, and I've been under orders to be on the lookout for its release. She's very happy with Fox's treatment of this title, which, after all, is not exactly a high-profile item in the catalogue, despite the pedigree (directed by Penny Marshall, co-written by David Franzoni, shot by Matthew Leonetti, edited by Mark Goldblatt).

    Goldberg still had the freshness and energy that she brought to the live performances that got her started. The plot's absurd, but it is a comedy. Time has added a few uncomfortable elements, notably the opening shot featuring the WTC Twin Towers and the Lady Di lookalike who staffs the reception desk at the British consulate. But a lot of the film is still quite funny. (I used to think the Diana Ross routine was over the top, but now it's one of my favorites.)
