DVD?

This is one of my favorite movies from the 80's, I know it's cheesy but thats what I loved about it and Peter Falk is hilarious. The way the three main characters play off each other is brilliant and who knew Cindi Lauper could act???

This movie was never going to win any awards and they all knew that before they started filming, Jeff Goldblum has always shown up in oddball movies ranging from Comedy to Drama To Sci-fi to Horror showing his range in acting.

OK, no matter your opinion on this film the big Question is.... when will this movie be released on DVD?

Has anyone heard any possible release date?
