    I've looked up both the My Girl films and both the Problem Child films. I thought they were all theatrical releases and wouldn't that mean that they were shot in widescreen format? I don't have a problem with buying DVDs of films that were shot in full frame, (like movies just for tv or video release.) If someone could tell me any more info about these films please do. I've always loved them but I don't really want to own them if I can only get them in FF.

    They are all pan & scan releases.

    Technically, I believe those two are open matte. Still not OAR, but not P&S either...

    Its Ironic that the movies you are asking about has the word problem in the title, because thats exactly what these DVD's are.

    Ok, well thanks for the help you guys. I wish there were OAR releases, but thanks again.

    My girl was released in region 2 in widescreen, I believe. 1.85:1.

    I'm waiting for a re-release of that at some point, since it was an early columbia tri-star movie (and one of my favorites of all time...)

    Problem Child might never see a wide release... as those 2 just got put out... shame. [​IMG]

    The "My Girl" and "Problem Child" movies were released in full frame, which is unfortunate. Although Universal re-released the first PC movie in widescreen for the first time in 2008 in its "Family Favorites Quadruple Feature", but I'll stick with the Tantrum Pack. I also own the original Goodtimes DVD of PC 1 from 2001. I'm keeping the latter since it's long out of print.
