Haha, thanks, at least I attatched the link
I normally hate the stupid titles they give these special editions but the "We've Got Bush" edition made me chuckle. lol The art for the box set is something to be desired, but hey, I'm interested in what's IN the box. I hope Fox eventually does right by the "Porky's" franchise by releasing all 3 films. After hearing about the atrocity that Maple here in Canada released, those movies are screaming for a proper release.
Has anyone found a review for this yet? It's coming out pretty soon.
Just tell them it refers to the President...
It's about time! I'll get the full set. Yeah, Porky's would be great as well. I don't know exactly why, but I'd buy that full set as well. I suspect the reason for this has something to do with the current president of the United States.
FYI: the title of the original movie's SE has been changed. It is now the Panty Raid Edition.
Changed it! Oh, those pansies! Of course, we wouldn't want to upset the lovely first lady. Now there's one nice bush for you!
I was a bit disappointed when I saw the name change too. Like I said above, the "We've Got Bush" edition made me laugh. Can't say I'm surprised they changed it though.
I didn't see the boxset today at Best Buy just the SE of the original. Did the boxset get pulled?
Since this is out, maybe a review will let us know if the cut phone number is back. Edit: I saw a post at DVD Talk (my first time there since 2002, according to my login!), and the scene is still cut. He says the transfer of the first one looks a little cleaned up, but the second one is the exact same as the version included on the double feature. Since I don't need 3 and 4, and the original release looks fine to me, I'm staying away.
I bought the set yesterday, as a birthday gift for myself today. I can't wait!!! "Everybody, clap your hands!" ry
I was wondering the same thing. The box set was nowhere to be found at my BB, but they had plenty of copies of the "panty raid" edition.
I went to two Best Buys and neither had the 4-pack, but dozens of copies of the 1st SE. I almost broke down, since the other 3 are mediocre at best, but I can't turn down 3 additional movies for $5. I went across the street to target, and they had plenty of the boxsets for $19.99.
They were the only store I believe that did not have it. I purchased mine from Target ($21.39) with a $3.00 off coupon ($18.01) from Coupons.com if anyone is interested along with a Borat and Office Space $3.00 off coupons as well on this site. http://print.coupons.com/gmsa/offers...ID=ad89&NID=10
Is there a review for this up anywhere? I'm thinking about picking up the boxset, but I haven't decided if it's worth replacing the double feature disc that I already have. The extras for the first movie sound like they'd be worth it though.
I think I'm going to call that phone number and harass whoever's responsible for getting it cut out of the movie
It wasn't pulled. We got some of them at the FYE I work at to put out yesterday. We didn't get any copies of the first movie by itself, though.
Picked up the single movie at Wal-Mart (they had some box sets, too). A classic. What I find amazing is that this was a movie that none of them wanted to be in, but as it got under way, they realized they had something, and now are all proud of the film. Too bad the PC Police changed the edition subtitle. Never saw any of the later films, because they would just diminish the returns on the original... "That's my Pi!" The TV pilot is really bad...
Keith - since I can't seem to find a review for this disc, can you comment on the extras? How is the commentary?
Patrick, the commentary with director Jeff Kanew and actors Robert Caradine (louis), Timothy Busfield (Poindexter) & Curtis Armstrong ("Booger") is very entertaining, and the retrospective documentary also includes interviews with Julie Montgomery (Betty Childs, who has a lobster tan from the neck down in her interviews), Ted McGinley (Stan Gable), and Larry B. Scott (Lamar Latrell). In the commentary, the guys felt bad for Scott, who played gay for the film, but was straight, and now spends the rest of his life trying to overcompensate for his performance (and had a hard time scoring girls on the campus after playing his part all day!) Lots of campus extras went to dailies, and the cast and crew turned their low-grade hotel lodgings into their own frat house during the shoot. From the first day's shooting (with Edwards, Carradine and "Jamie" Cromwell crammed in the front seat of the station wagon) there was a sense that this was going to be a good film. The ending night scenes were the worst, though - shot at night in February, and it was freezing cold. For me, James Cromwell will always be "Stretch" Cunningham!
