    Where are the films that were made by the indie company Rysher Entertainment? I know that in 1999 Cox Enterprises decided to close down the company, and in 1997 it shut down the film unit. Paramount Pictures supposedly has distribution rights, but has only released two titles from the company "House Arrest" and "Kingpin" both of which had been distributed theatrically by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. I also know Paramount does release these movies digitally but does not include "The Opposite of Sex" (I believe Sony has the rights to that one via Sony Pictures Classics.) Unfortunately, Rysher licensed its films to various companies (HBO, WBHE, MGM, Sony and Paramount) and the original DVD releases are out of print and now are being sold at unfair prices on Amazon and eBay. So my question is why are they hoarding such a marvelous film library?
