This needs to be on DVD and Blue-Ray
11 February 2015 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

This comedy movie has an all star cast which is why it is puzzling that it is not available anywhere on video, DVD and/or Blu-Ray. It is a great comedy displaying the stereotype between the laid-back style of the California West to the fast-paced style of the New Jersey/ NY East. When Robbie Benson goes out to L.A. to meet the girl of his dreams, he has all the preconceived notions of what it will be like and find in California. It is a very funny and enjoyable movie to watch. It stars Robbie Benson, Tawny Kitaen, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Martin Mull, Doris Roberts who plays the mom in the show Everybody Loves Raymond. Will some movie studio PLEASE put this out on DVD.
