Liked to have a part of it and want to know it will ever be out DVD or Video?
24 December 2003 | by gshybargerSee all my reviews

Take Me Home Again,(aka: The Lies Boys Tell) was an interesting film. I had a chance to work one day as an extra on the movie and met many of the princlple actors in the movie. It is also interesting to have seen that many of the places where the film was shot were right here in San Jose. Two of those scenes were the airport sequence and the final scene where Kirk Douglas's character dies. I was involved with the airport scenes and later that same day with a scene that didn't make the final cut. I still hope that it will come out on DVD or Video, because, although made for TV, it would be better to have commercial free copy. The story was also well portrayed. Like so many films of this kind a large part of it home. The reunion of a father and his son had some simularities to my own life, that's why I liked it.
