    The Sandlot is one of my most wanted titles. I can't wait! Thanks for the good news.
    I also can do with out Baby's Day Out. But I'm sure somebody out there wants to own it.

    I'm not one for movies aimed at kids, but The Sandlot was fantastic.
    I think this will be a purchase.

    Breaking Away & My Bodyguard are must-buys, especially at that price.
    What the heck is Baby's Day Out?? I've never even heard of that one!
    Gotta hand it to Fox (once more) - a family line with all anamorphic widescreen transfers - not a P&S in sight!! [​IMG]

    I have been waiting for The Sandlot for quite some time now. Counting down the days.

    Excellent news!!! I LOVED My Bodyguard when I first saw it
    way back when. I have to admit I am intrigued about The
    Sandlot. Everybody seems to want this film. Excuse my
    ignorance but what is it about?

    Thanks FOX for BREAKING AWAY. A definite purchase for me. Gotta admit that I was (pleasantly) surprised when I saw this one announced.

    I'm thrilled about Breaking Away also, but it seems kind of strange to lump it into the same Family Features category with Sandlot and Baby's Day Out. Breaking Away, while suitable for younger ones, is clearly a movie aimed at adults (or at least college-aged kids).
    At any rate, it's a must-have for me.

    And how many of you that are fawning over Breaking Away, bothered to sign our struggling petition on the Studio feedback page?
    Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it's coming (and much sooner than I thought [​IMG]) It was just the frustration and struggle to keep it on the page, because nobody would sign it.
    Turns out Fox was listening, and that petition wasn't necessary. Good!
    I suggested this one to Peter Staddon last Nov. when we paid him a visit. I like to think I maybe sparked an interest there. Well, one can dream can't he? [​IMG]
    The Sandlot, and My Bodyguard are also very good news. $60 bucks for 3 movies? Bargain!

    Good summary of the movie...
    One thing I'll add is that the kid who doesn't know how to play is "taken under the wing" of the best player on the team and they become good friends.
    Also of note is that Dennis Leary's performance is literally like none of his other performaces.
    He plays his character completly "straight" with no irony.
    It is touching and one of his better performances.
    It's a great film...can't wait to pick it up.
    For those of you who have seen it...don't forget Wendy Pefercorn!

    YESSSS!!! I have been hoping for DVDs of My Bodguard and Breaking Away, two of my favorites, too. Now I can ditch that old pan and scan laser disc of Breaking Away. Let's hear it for "family favorites" that are anamorphic widescreen. What does Fox know that Warners doesn't?
    And, er, I'm looking forward to the Shirley Temple DVDs.
    Thank you Fox! If only you would release Taps and Turk 182 onto DVD... (banging THAT drum again)
