| hoping its on DVD
does anyone out there know if tyne Daley's film the perfect mother is out on DVD because i am having a hard time finding out if it is on DVD. they say its a good film and to watch it again, but u can't if its not on DVD . very slow of them if they haven't i certainly would buy one straight away. i cant wait to see it again i thought it was an excellent film but it should not be kept just as a TV film because that is just pants. i think it would do very well in the DVD shops please please someone tell whoever it concerns to put it on DVD its driving me mad as i want my family to see it as they cant understand why i'm making such a fuss about it, but tyne Daley is first class in this i don't think anyone else could have put the same mark on the film like she did. first class.
