| Why oh Why isn't this on DVD yet?
If you're not a John Larroquette fan nor a fan or Kirstie Alley at her heyday, don't bother to read on. But if you loved John in Night Court and Kirstie in Cheers, you're in for a treat.

This is the best of both of them. And as a couple they really work - the chemistry, the timing, everything. Tom Ropelewski really hit it out of the park in writing and directing this. So many great quotes, so many great characters, and subplots that all come back together at the end.

I've always heard, in writing school, that if you want us to care about a character or laugh at a character, keep making things fall apart for him/her. Well, I've seldom seen things fall apart so many times in a row. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse...it gets worse. Over and over.

Sure, it's as dated as a film could be for its era. The clothes, hair, music, everything. But nobody could play it better. Nobody.

It's a bit PG in a couple of places, where there's a bit of foreplay and one racy part where Kirstie starts to strip, but my 10 and 13 year olds haven't been grossed and they think it's hysterical.

Just showed it to a friend that's 36 (another writer) and he loved it.

So-o-o-o...why isn't this out on DVD yet, when so many people are clamoring for it? I'd sure buy it!
