Format: DVD
I have liked this movie for years and years. It was well done, charming, and worth repeat viewings.

Lionsgate has done an appallingly awful job on this DVD. They don't even know who their audience are...

It opens with a very inappropriate red-banded, R rated noisy hard-sell preview of a horror movie, followed by another horror preview. Both of these fourth-rate screamers have unknown casts, yet they were treated infinitely better than the feature we are paying for on this disc - a well written movie starring four very famous actors. While the horror movies got newly remastered in widescreen with new interviews, this movie seems to have been copied from a grainy pan/scan transfer on an old VHS tape.

The gratingly cheesy-busy menus seem to have been made up by someone who thinks the 80s were nothing but disco. The scene selection is lazily authored to force the viewer to manually navigate from page to page, rather than linking them together so you can right click through them all in sequence.

The picture is so dark that many scenes are now played out almost totally unwatchably in black screen or shadows. There are eve changeover cues, meaning it was transferred from an old exhibition print.

Clearly the principle that anything worth doing is worth doing well is lost on Lionsgate. They obviously have no respect for this movie, which they refer to as "forgotten" on the cover, and have deliberately issued a product that is obsolete. It's amazing that they would list "full screen" as a "feature" in today's world when even broadcast TV is going widescreen. The fact is that for a great many people who buy this, it will NOT be in full-screen at all, and it is missing maybe a third of the picture from its Original Aspect Ratio.

I echo some of the other reviews. The movie is terrific; the other "Lost" titles (with the exception of "Slaughter High") are full-framed but pristine prints. This transfer is as grainy as if I had taken the VHS and copied it myself to a DVD. It's an amazing rip-off, but I guess it doesn't matter to Lionsgate. I can't imagine what can be done, save sending back the discs. But since there's no other version (EXCEPT an old VHS copy--with the same quality) you're plum f***k out of luck.

This was a great movie with an all star cast. The plot was fantastic and it was an excellent "feel good" movie. The movie gets five stars and the film transfer to dvd gets zero stars. My rating is two stars. I love this movie so I bought it to have it in my collection. I am keeping it even though it has many dark scenes and blackouts. Keep this in mind and hopefully someday we will get a good print of this film.

I have been waiting for this film on DVD for years; because of its non-existence on DVD I had even saved my old Vestron Video copy when I had gotten rid of the majority of my VHS collection many years ago. I was very excited to seen this film recently released on DVD by Lionsgate...until I watched it. This has got to be one of the worst transfers of a film to DVD that I have ever seen by a major distributor. Lionsgate should be totally and unequivocally ashamed to have put out such a shoddily produced DVD. The transfer is obviously taken from a VHS tape, in fact the original Vestron Video logo even appears before (and at the conclusion) of the film, just as on my original VHS tape from the 1980's. The picture is unbelievably dark in many places and the printers marks denoting reel changes are still present (another clue that this is in fact the VHS master, as these marks appear on the original Vestron copy). If this were a well-done transfer, it would have easily gotten five stars because the film is still one of the most underrated comedy/dramas from the 1980's. I hope that with all the negative reviews that this DVD has gotten that Lionsgate will see fit to give this film a more proper release on DVD. We can only hope.

I'm not gonna say much about this great, albeit obscure film. It's obvious to me that if you're searching for this, then you already know what a cute, funny awesome 80s flick this is. What I do want to say is that this Special Edition sold by Paint It Orange, has great clarity and is not at all grainy, nor does it have black outs. There's another version of this DVD sold out there for a few years now, that many have complained about, this one is DIFFERENT! Now do keep in mind, it was made in 1984 and it looks like it was made in 1984, and sometimes there is a "chapter" closing where the screen goes momentarily black, that is not a "black-out", but a pause to let you know the movie is transitioning on to a different era in their lives. All in all, I am SO HAPPY I got this all-time fave of mine.

Format: Blu-ray
Length: 4:12 Mins
The 1984 comedy-drama about a 9-year-old girl seeking emanicipation from her dysfunctional and neglectful parents has been given a remastered Blu-ray/DVD picture by Olive Films. The film is notable for being a entertaining satire of the film industry, a not-so-subtle sendup of the love affair between director Peter Bogdanovich and actress Cybill Shepherd, and a percursor of things to come for child actress Drew Barrymore, who plays the daughter in the film and would later seek emanicipation for real from her own parents. Written by Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer of "Private Benjamin" fame, the film travels beautifully from romantic comedy to divorce drama and Hollywood satire. Meyers and Shyer were friends with Bogdanovich's ex-wife Polly Pratt, and the film does portray the wife, played wonderfully here by Shelley Long, more sympathetically. Ryan O'Neal, who starred in some of the best films by Bogdanovich such as "Paper Moon", here plays a version of Bogdanovich himself, a young filmmaker who leaves his wife for his young starlet. Relative newcomer Sharon Stone is fairly entertaining as the homewrecker. But it is Barrymore's marvelously weary and calm portrayal of the suffering daughter of O'Neal and Long that showcases this once-in-a-generation child talent that she was. The film was shot by the late 6-time Oscar nominee William A. Fraker, whose cinematography is also much better presented by the new remastered Blu-ray/DVD.

On the Olive Films' Region-A single-layer Blu-ray and the corresponding Region-1 single-layer DVD, colors and brightness are presented much better than the old 2009 DVD by Lionsgate.
