    I just hope that the laserdisc commentary (or any other extras that might be on the laserdisc, I can't find any real hard info online, just a few mentions of said commentary) makes it onto the disc. I'm a fan of Robert Rodriguez and "Roadracers" is his only directorial outing that I haven't been able to see. While I haven't ever seen it the strength of his other movies (except "The Faculty" which was pretty bad) will justify a blind purchase for me.

    Woo! Woo! Woo!
    This is my favorite of Rodriguez's films. Just an all around fun homage to old '50s greaser movies. Kind of rough around the edges but that's how I like it. Really happy about this announcement [​IMG]

    Does anyone have any more info on this DVD? It supposedly streets in less than 2 weeks yet most retailers don't have it in their systems, and I can't find any information as to whether or not the laserdisc commentary is on the DVD.

    I looked everywhere for it. Asked every store to check in their system. It does not exist. I've checked E-tailers like Amazon, DVD Planet and it does not exist there either. So what gives? Anyone know where, or why?

    It's still on Buena Vista's retail website with the 1/14 release date and even a UPC Code (786936204421). As far as actually existing and being in any store, I am as confused as you are! I can't find it anywhere!

    I just spoke with Disney on the phone (2/24/03) about ROADRACERS and they said they were aware that it was in their computer with a part number and price BUT that it was not available and they did not have a date when it would be released.

    I did complain and asked someone to get back to me when they have a date. We'll see what happens.
