This film must be released on DVD immediately!!
15 April 2005 | by doobcentralSee all my reviews

This film is an absolute classic and it is a crime that it is not available on DVD.

There must be something us film lovers can do to rectify this injustice.

This film is hysterical, moving and poignant all rolled into one which is a rarity in itself.

For me, Patrick Dempsey and Daniel Stern steal the show as the feuding brothers who constantly clash with great hilarity.

Sterns performance had me in tears of laughter, especially in his moments of rage.

A great cast, a great script and an extremely well hidden master piece which does not get the credit it deserves.

I can not really say any more than that!!
