    MGM has announced a November 06th release-date for their hitmovie of this summer Legally Blonde.
    No details announced yet but I am sure looking forward to this dvd.
    Just for your information. [​IMG]

    Good lord... Nothing against this movie (I haven't seen it), but this practice of getting movies on video three or four months after their theatrical premiere seems to be getting a little out of hand. Is it really good for the industry to push them through the pipeline so quickly?

    I think the idea is to get some spillover benefit from advertising done for the film. You make the home version available before people have time to forget what the film was about.
    Besides, I suspect MGM needs the cash. [​IMG]

    This is just fine for me, no complaining here.
    This is just less time for me to see the movie in a "quality" venue, my own HT.
    As far as I'm concerned, this is a great move, as this is a movie I would like to see (maybe buy) and was not able to due to time constraints do to a small child!

    You liked the movie? ......Try it on a nine foot screen.
