    One of the great comedies of all-time is this, the 1990 Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen film, "Men at Work". Some genuinely hilarious moments, particularly involving Keith David's character and just one of those silly films that you can laugh without having to think too much. [​IMG]
    I know many people like it and would be willing to buy the DVD no matter how unfavorably it was reviewed.
    The VHS was released by Polygram which has since become defunct. I believe that turns the video release rights over to USA Films (as with The Game), but I'm not totally sure.
    If anyone knows, please let me know.

    Classic comedy, you can't go wrong with two Sheen siblings in a movie! I would pick this up as long as it is widescreen!

    Um...

    This is an MGM title now. They got it through their acquisition of Epic Productions.

    So MGM is the reason why any movie I want on DVD that's not out isn't out.

    Now, that includes Clifford, Teen Wolf, North, and Men at Work, as well.

    "Looks pretty undrivable."

    I guess MGM having rights rules out having anything beyond a trailer. Well maybe it also means that these four will be released at $14.99 or $19.99 retail, which would be cool.
