    I just picked ROXANNE up at my local Wal-Mart [Hey, it incudes the widescreen version...!] for a stunning $9.44, but before I opened it, I wanted to check:

    Has anyone heard anything about a special edition of this film being released on DVD soon? I absoutely love this movie, but if a better version is coming [as is certainly deserved!], I'll gladly wait for it. I'd love to hear a Martin commentary for what I think is his best film.

    Anyone?

    Thanks and happy new year,
    mattl

    Speaking of Steve Martin, I really wish the price of "The Lonely Guy" would drop. It seems as if it can't be purchased for less than $20.00 or so. This should be a $9.99 title, as well.

    Matt,

    I have not heard anything about a SE for Roxanne. And since this is one I'd definitely buy I'm always keeping my eyes (and ears) open for any rumours.
    I'd say it's safe to open it. Enjoy the film.

    Chris

    I have this DVD. The tranfer quality is good but not great. It's also anamorphic.

    I also love this movie. It's my second favorite Steve Martin movie next to Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

    I also really loved the town Roxanne was filmed in: Nelson, B.C., Canada. Absolutely gorgeous little town! Even more beautiful in person. If you're ever up in that area, pay it a visit. It's the kind of town I'd like to retire in.
