    Does anyone know if Paramount is planning to release this utterly side splitting comedy to dvd anytime soon?
    I saw it on Comedy Central last week after not seeing it in awhile and laughed my ass off! Now I have the urge to own it, but alas, it's not on dvd yet. [​IMG]
    One of Val Kilmer's best roles IMO.[​IMG]

    Sigh.

    It'll probably be barebones though.

    I wish they'd at least give us a group commentary like on the Airplane! disc. If they could somehow get Val Kilmer involved, it'd be interesting. But I highly doubt he'd want anything to do with it.

    Hillary: "Nick...what does your name mean?"

    Nick: "Nothing. My father thought of it while shaving."

    Martin the manager coming to see Nick in his cell.

    "I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist only to lose her to her childhood lover whom she last saw on a deserted island who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French Underground."

    Guys,
    Should I mention that the reason
    Paramount is releasing Top Secret
    is because of all of YOU.
    We went to Martin a year ago, shortly after
    the release of Airplane and made a plea
    for his studio to release Top Secret.
    Martin put the wheels in motion because of
    this forum.
    It should be out by year's end.

    "I know a little German......he's sitting right over there....."

    This movie is a cult favorite among my friends.....we grew up watching it and I must have seen it more than ten times. This would make a perfect gift for them.
