    For anyone who's interested, Amazon is listing the "The Tall Guy" for release on 19 March 2002.

    I've been looking out for this movie on DVD since I bought a player. Does anyone know any further details? A widescreen transfer alone would be reason enough to buy this, but a commentary by Mel Smith (with or without Jeff Goldblum, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson and/or Richard Curtis) would be the icing on the cake.

    For anyone who's not seen "The Tall Guy", this is a genuinely funny comedy, not to mention a precusor to writer Richard Curtis' "Four Weddings..." and "Notting Hill" (the big difference being that in each of those two movies a diffident Englishman falls for a self-confident American Woman, whereas in The Tall Guy a diffident American man falls for a self-confident Englishwoman).

    Christopher, thanks for the heads-up. I love this movie! However, you forgot the most important thing about it - mainly, Emma Thompson gets naked! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    According to DVD File, the disc will feature an anamorphic transfer, Dolby 2.0 surround track and the trailer.

    Oh well, a few extras would have been nice, but the film's the thing and so I'll quite happily settle for a "bare bones" widescreen transfer.
