DVD or Video? Hello???
I actually had the opportunity to see this film in a theatre, and I laughed my ass off from the very beginning. Normally I can't stand Jerry Stiller (or Ben for that matter), but this movie was great. It's spoof on Roger Corman's early works is brilliant. My only question is: When are we going to get a home release of this film??? So far I've only been able to tape if off Comedy Central, and it's pan & scan and loses a lot from being blurred and edited. I want The Independent on DVD!!! It has big names, it just wasn't given a fare shake at all. I don't get it. 10 out of 10...
