I do want to inform everyone ordering this on DVD.
THE NEGATIVES (some are very minor)
The Movie is "MGM ON-DEMAND" which is where MGM make a copy using DVD-R media to make the movie themselves. Same thing as Columbias version of on demand disks. This is not a bad thing but it does make some minor differences when you love movies.
The DVD only takes up 4 gigs of space so you knowledgeable people know what that means. Sound quality for one.
The sound on this is in mono and only plays on my center speaker so you will need to make some adjustments or find a good stereo setting to use. Dukes of Hazzard series was one that bugs me when its in mono. At least make it so it plays on at least two speakers in mono!
It may not play in some players as stated in print on the back. It says it will play on "play only" devices and may not play back on PCs or some DVD players. It would NOT play at all on my Xbox 360 for example. But it does play on my PC no problem. It also played on two of my portable players.
But dont assume it wont play for you. I wouldnt want to scare you :)
The printing on the disk is a standard MGM logo, some small print and the name "UP THE CREEK" in small lettering from a standard PC font. But at least its not a label stuck to the disk.
My wife gets mad when I ignore everything else when Heather Merriweather (Jennifer Runyon) is on the screen. Especially when she says that one line :)
I would say those last two negatives are very minor.Read more ›
This movie is funnier than Animal House, Revenge of the Nerds, Porky's, Meatballs, CaddyShack or any of the other similar comedies of its time... and in essence captures the best of each of those movies into one place. There are lots of fun characters and scenes... and best of all, in my opinion, some of the best funny dialog in a comedy. Tim Matheson absolutely shines in this... its a shame this movie wasnt a smash and he wasnt able to play more roles like this. McGraw (Matheson) delivers a classic line in this after the character Heather, played by Jennifer Runyon, says something to the effect of "You wouldnt lie to me, would you?"... he retorts... "Of course I'd lie to you, I'm a guy... but I'm not lying now...". That is still my alltime favorite line in a movie. I think there is alot of clever/sarcastic wit and dialog like that throughout the movie... perhaps why not everyone got it... it was alot more than T & A and relied more on comic timing than nudity (though it featured a bit of that as well). Many other movies were dirtier... this was simply funnier! This NEEDS to be on DVD!!!! Its sad how many crappy cheap comedy movies are on DVD and this gem has thus far been forgotten.
