Anamorphic? Or just new cover?
Hey, thanks for posting about this! I've been wanting to get this movie on DVD for awhile now, but it had seemed to go OOP...and it was apparently re-released to DVD on Tuesday. I have no idea if it is anamorphic, but there seems to be separate WS and FS versions available...or at least that's what a few sites said after a google search. (although, Amazon only has one version available right now...and I don't think DDD has it listed at all...) I suppose these could just be the same versions that were previously available, (only with "Holiday Themed O-Ring" packaging) which, would be fine with me, as I was looking forward to seeing all those special features that were supposedly on that older version. I will have to e-mail Fox about this... If anyone has any info about this release, please share...
Also looking for info on this. Will buy if Anamorphic.
I haven't even seen this for sale anywhere in Canada. Someone got it yet? anamorphic or no? David
so what is the deal with this movie. is there a new dvd? buy.com has it in stock http://www.buy.com/retail/Product.as...deo&adid=17662 amazon in stock, no pic http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...dvdpricesearch amazon has another listing with the pic and 3 in stock more coming soon. http://www.amazon.com/Mrs-Doubtfire-...429352-3549453
It's definitely here in Canada. I saw it at Cinema 1 last week. I have no idea if it's just a repackage of the original though. I was in too much of a rush to read the back of the case. But yeah, it is here.
Saw this in Fry's last night. While the slipcase says Anamorphic, the actual cover art is identical to the old release, no mention of anamorphic, and copyright 1999. I didn't feel like taking a $15 chance so I passed.
So, nothing new to this release other than it being widescreen then? I've held off hoping for a better release. Maybe this is all we're gonna get? I dunno if I should snag it or not. And why is the new box art all Christmased up? I don't rem this being a Xmas movie.....
Surely someone must have taken a chance on this, or a reviewer got one and can tell us anamorphic, yes or no.
i think the old one was widescreen. the cover seems to suggest, good christmas present. the ones ive seen on the shelf look exaclty the same as the first release. also not seeing it with the new slip cover.
None of the .com sites have any information on if its anamorphic. They simply state "Widescreen." Oh joyus indeed.
It is now confirmed that this Christmas 2006 release is NOT anamorphic. A friend got it as a gift, and I ran it last night. 1) Definitely NOT anamorphic... it shows up on screen exactly the same way as every other non-anamorphic DVD I've watched. Picture loss on all sides on Oppo 971 set to wide/sqz 2) Only the slip cover is different... the slipcover says anamorphic 2.35:1. But the case underneath is EXACTLY the same as the old one, and so is the DVD. The specs of the case underneath still say 2.35:1 letterboxed And so it is... At least in Canada, that's the way it is. Bummer.
What hosers! Take off, eh! I can't believe they pulles that sh!t.
Typical Fox. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Excellent news! Sounds like it'll be a great release. I'm just glad I held off from buying the existing one. I love this movie and will definitely pick this one up.
Looking forward to this, it's one of my favorite movies. Most of those extras were on the laserdisc version and I'm glad they're making their way onto DVD.
No kidding. The current DVD has very lackluster video quality, so I'll be glad to upgrade.
