Please release Tidy Endings on DVD
12 September 2007 | by sammyraygordonSee all my reviews

I love this movie so much and I have ever since I watched it multiple times on HBO in the 1980's. The acting in it is so wonderful, the characters are created in a way that you are drawn into their lives and you become part of the story and feel what they are feeling.

Please, either play this on HBO again and notify interested parties, or better than that, bring this film out on DVD. It is such a shame that it has sat on a shelf all these years and denied the viewing of thousands of people that this film could help.

I rank this film up there with all of the gay classics. I think you have my point by now so I will stop hounding you. Just Please put this film on DVD, you would make a few bucks, and a lot of loyal fans happy. Thanks
