Courtesy: Shout! Factory

Shout! Factory is resurrecting a former Fox sitcom on DVD.

Ned and Stacey is coming to DVD Sept. 26 in stores and online via Shout! Factory.  The short-lived series ran for two seasons on Fox from 1995 – ’97.  It follows the misadventures of married couple Ned (Thomas Haden Church – Wings, Spiderman 3, Sideways) and Stacey (Debra Messing — Will & Grace, The Starter Wife, Along Came Polly) as the perfectly polar opposites make their mismatched marriage work.

The series’ premise sees Ned, the uptight ad exec, needing a wife in order to climb the corporate ladder.  Enter Stacey, who marries Ned because she needs a place to live.  From the pair’s unlikely beginning to the constant ups and downs of their unstable relationship to its intriguing finale, the series’ full 46-episode run is here.

Along with the full 46-episode run, the new box set will also include a 20-minute look back on the series with Church and Messing.  Audio commentary from series creator Michael J. Weithorn is also included in the series’ pilot episode as an additional bonus.

Ned & Stacey: The Complete Series will retail for MSRP of $44.99. It can be pre-ordered online now at a reduced price of $35.99 via Shout! Factory’s online store.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

Transformers Rescue Bots’ Latest DVD Is A Hit For The Whole “Family”

Courtesy: Shout! Factory/Shout! Factory Kids

Shout! Factory Kids teamed up late last month with Hasbro Studios for yet another collection of Transformers Rescue Bots episodes in the form of Transformers Rescue Bots: Rescue Family.  The single-disc compilation culls five more episodes from the animated Discovery Family series that the whole family will enjoy.  That is due in part to the episodes themselves.  This will be discussed shortly.  The stories within the episodes are collectively important to the collection, too and will be discussed later.  It is not the last of the collection’s key elements either.  The disc’s average price point rounds out its most important elements.  When it is considered along with the collection’s episodes and their stories, the whole of the collection proves to be yet another of this year’s top new children’s DVDs.

Transformers Rescue Bots: Rescue Family is one of this year’s top new children’s DVDs.  It is a collection that children will enjoy just as much as grown-ups.  That is due in part to the episodes culled for the collection.  Five episodes from the hit animated Discovery Family series were collected for this collection, which has remained the standard for every one of the series’ previously released collections.  The episodes – ‘Road Trip,’ ‘Prescott’s Bots!,’ Odd Bot Out,’ ‘Chief Woodrow’ and ‘More Than Meets The Eye’ – were pulled from the series’ second and third seasons.  The first three episodes were pulled from the series’ second season, and the last two from its third season.  This collection is not the first of the series’ DVDs to feature episodes from multiple seasons.  However, that its episodes were pulled specifically from those two seasons rather than randomly across the board presents a clear focus in the episode choices.

The episodes featured in Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios’ latest Transformers Rescue Bots DVD Rescue Family are clearly important to the disc’s overall presentation.  That is proven through the focus placed on the seasons from which they were lifted.  While the episodes are clearly important, they are not the collection’s only important collective element.  The stories within the episodes are just as important to the collection’s presentation as the episodes themselves.  That is important to note because while they do bring back in some familiar secondary characters, the stories themselves do not repeat any of the episodes that came before or after.

“Chief Woodrow” is a key example of this statement.  Chief Burns’ brother Woodrow returns once again in this episode, except this time the trouble happens not beneath the island but on the island as Chief Burns is away at a Police Conference.  Woodrow (who is once again voiced by Mark Hamill – Star Wars, Batman: The Animated Series) ends up being named acting police chief after he saves the mayor, leading to even more trouble.

Lead episode “Road Trip” exemplifies that statement just as much as “Chief Woodrow.”  This episode’s story is yet another that is centered on trouble caused by Doc Greene’s inventions.  This time out, Doc Greene has developed a transporter a la Star Trek (rather fitting since Levar Burton made his fame on Star Trek: The Next Generation).  The problem is that the transporter turns out to be a one-way transporter, rather than a two-ray device.  This leads to its own share of problems for Cody and the Rescue Bots.  Meanwhile Kade has to be rescued by a paramedic named Taylor after the pair crash-land in the forest while Taylor is hang gliding.  Both of these story lines are original to the series’ history, showing again the importance of the stories presented in each episode.

The story line presented in “Odd Bot Out” is yet another example of that importance.  Blades’ infatuation with Bumblebee comes to the fore yet again in this story.  But instead of the pair working together to save Griffin Rock, Bumblebee works with Dani on a top-secret mission, leaving Blades the proverbial fifth wheel of sorts.  The reason they end up partnering is that Dani’s pilot’s license expired and she has to get it renewed.  Meanwhile sinkholes start appearing all around the island, threatening to sink the island thanks to Madeline Pynch activating an ancient technology below the waves just off of the island’s coast.  Given, it’s not the first time that the writers have had Griffin Rock’s residents threatened by a potential sinking of the island.  But the way in which the writers handled this matter did keep the story from just re-hashing its predecessor’s story.  Keeping that in mind, this story line is still another example of why the stories presented in this collection’s episodes are just as important to the disc’s overall presentation as the episodes themselves.

The stories at the center of Transformers Rescue Bots: Rescue Family are clearly integral to the collection’s overall presentation.  That is evidenced through the stories discussed above.  Keeping that mind, the stories are not the last of the set’s most important elements.  The disc’s average price point is just as important to its presentation as its episodes and their relative stories.  The disc’s average price point between major retailers Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Shout! Factory’s own online store, comes to approximately $10.35.  Considering that the disc’s five episodes present a total run time of 110 minutes (1 hour, 50 minutes), a roughly $10 (plus tax likely) price tag is not that bad.  That is especially considering other discs with just as many episodes from other series and companies are nearly twice as expensive.  Keeping this in mind, it becomes clear why the average price point for this collection of episodes is important to the collection’s presentation as its episodes and their stories.  When it is joined with those elements, the whole of the elements makes this disc a grouping that is both enjoyable and cost efficient.  In turn, it becomes a collection that is deserving of plenty of applause and of being placed on any critic’s list of the year’s top new children’s DVDs.

Transformers Rescue Bots: Rescue Family is one of this year’s top new children’s DVDs.  It is a work that children and adults alike will enjoy thanks to its episodes and their stories.  Parents will especially appreciate the disc’s relatively affordable average price point.  Each is important in its own right as noted previously.  Keeping this in mind, this collection of episodes deserves its own share of applause and of being placed on any critic’s list of the year’s top new children’s DVDs.  It can be ordered online direct via Shout! Factory’s online store.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

‘Car Wash’ BD Re-Issue Is A Must See For Any Classic Movie Fan

Courtesy: Shout! Factory

The summer movie season is officially in swing once again, but sadly, Hollywood’s “Big Six” studios haven’t really turned out much about which audiences can be excited.  That leaves one wondering what alternatives are available.  One answer comes in the form of Shout! Factory’s recent re-issue of the classic dramedy Car Wash.  Released June 20 on Blu-ray, this 1976 flick is the polar opposite of everything in theaters today and almost everything before with few exceptions.  That is due in part to the movie’s story, one of its key elements to examine.  It will be discussed shortly.  The movie’s soundtrack is just as important to note believe it or not.  It will be discussed later.  The soundtrack is discussed at more length in the movie’s bonus material, which in itself is important to note.  Each element noted here is important in its own right to the whole of Car Wash’s presentation in its recent re-issue.  All things considered, Shout! Factory’s recent re-issue of Car Wash is a solid alternative to Hollywood’s annual lack of summer entertainment.

Shout! Factory’s recent re-issue of Universal Pictures’ classic dramedy Car Wash is an enjoyable alternative to Hollywood’s annual lack of entertaining summer fare.  That is due in part to the story at the center of the movie.  The story is relatively simple.  It follows a group of car wash employees over the course of a single day on the job. It sounds simple, and it is.  But it’s that simplicity that makes the story so interesting even with all of the different story lines.  Far too often in today’s movies, multiple story lines are the norm, and far too often, those multiple story lines mess up said movies because said movies’ writers don’t know how to balance the stories.  That wasn’t the case here.  Script writer Joel Schumacher (yes, the same one responsible for those awful Batman movies) actually did an applause worthy job in balancing each character’s story within the bigger picture of the story’s script.  That ability to balance the stories ensures audiences engagement from beginning to end.

On another level, the story’s aesthetic elements add even more to its surprising enjoyment.  It balances just as well its dramatic elements and its more comedic moments, making the story even more entertaining.  Viewers will laugh as one of the guys stuffs his friend’s sandwich with hot peppers and as George Carlin’s taxi driver looks for a woman who tried to get a free ride in his cab, trying to get his money.  What’s interesting about his performance is that one can’t help but wonder if Bill Murray might have taken Carlin’s performance as inspiration for his performance in Caddyshack.  Putting the pair’s performances side by side, one can’t ignore the similarity in the characters’ portrayals.  Getting back on track, audiences will be just as entertained in the story’s more moving moments such as when T.C. tries to woo a certain young lady and when Duane tries to rob the car wash (not to give away too much).  Between these moments and so many more, the balance of the story’s humorous and heartfelt elements makes the story even more entertaining.  Doing a comparison to certain other movies, one can’t help but compare that balance to that presented in Friday.  Stylistically, the two stories are very similar in that aspect.  Keeping that in mind, it shows potentially the long reach that this story has had.  Considering that and the balance in the story’s multiple lines, it becomes clear why Car Wash’s story is central to its presentation in more ways than one.  It is of course just one of the movie’s important elements.  Its soundtrack is an important element to note, too.

The story at the center of Car Wash is central to its presentation not just because it is the story, but because of the balance in its multiple arcs and aesthetic elements.  That balance ensures audiences’ engagement throughout the course of the classic dramedy.  Even with this in mind, it is not the movie’s only important element.  The movie’s soundtrack is just as important to note.  That’s because it isn’t just a random soundtrack.  In fact, as is discussed in the bonus material, it is actually its own part of the movie.  As is noted, the movie is actually built around its soundtrack.  The songs are deliberately placed alongside each scene in order to heighten each scene’s appropriate emotion.  Such a practice is something rare nowadays in most films.  It shows, too, with so many soundtracks just overflowing with Top 40 and rock songs.  Given, the songs included in this movie are major radio hits to this day.  But they were strategically placed, and quite well at that.  Even more interesting to note is that the movie’s title song was released before the movie even hit theaters.  That, too is noted in the movie’s bonus material, which will be discussed shortly.  Considering the deliberate, well thought out placement of the movie’s soundtrack, it goes a long way toward adding to the movie’s entertainment especially taking into account the knowledge of that intentional placement.  Keeping this in mind, it becomes fully clear why the soundtrack around which Car Wash’s story is built is just as important as the movie’s story.  It is not the last of the movie’s important elements either.  Those previously noted bonus materials round out the movie’s most important elements in its recent re-issue.

The bonus material included in Car Wash’s recent Blu-ray re-issue via Shout! Factory are important to the movie’s presentation because they, surprisingly, create the movie’s backbone.  It is through Producer Gary Stromberg’s discussions that audiences learn about the movie’s story being created around its soundtrack rather than the other way around.  His discussion also reveals the tidbit about the movie’s title song being released to radio in order to build excitement about the movie.  Audiences will be surprised to learn just how much excitement that approach built.  For those unfamiliar with the song, the discussion on the song along provides an interesting history behind the composition.  As if that isn’t enough, Stromberg reveals he was still a struggling college student when the idea for Car Wash came about.  Audiences will be surprised to learn this piece of history, considering how popular the movie has gone on to become in the now almost 41 years since it debuted—on Oct. 22, 1976.  Stromberg’s discussions on the Soul train dancers being hired to dance at the movie’s premiere, how the story was scripted, and more are just as enlightening as his other discussions, too.  Considering all of this, Stromberg’s overall discussions form a solid foundation for Car Wash in its recent re-issue.  Looking back in hindsight, it is recommended that audiences watch this discussion before taking in the movie because of the groundwork that it lays.

Stromberg’s thoughts are not the only important input presented through the movie’s bonus material in its recent re-issue. Schumacher’s own commentary throughout the movie offers its own interest.  That will be left for audiences to discover for themselves.  His commentary, when coupled with that of Stromberg, creates a solid foundation for Car Wash proving finally just how important the movie’s bonus material is to its whole.  Keeping this in mind, the movie’s bonus material proves to be just as important to its presentation as its soundtrack and story in making it entertaining in its recent re-issue. Keeping all of this in mind, the movie in whole proves to be, again, a solid alternative to anything that Hollywood’s current lack of worthwhile entertainment.

Shout! Factory’s recent Car Wash re-issue is a classic that was well-deserving of being unearthed.  In a time when Hollywood’s Big Six are struggling to turn out anything truly meaningful or even memorable, its balance of heart and humor couples with its equally well-balanced story lines to make it a movie that will resonate with any true classic movie buff and that shows how far Hollywood has fallen from its former glory.  With that in mind, it is – once again – a movie that will entertain any audience looking for an alternative to Hollywood’s current fare.  It is available now in stores and online and can be ordered online direct via Shout! Factory’s online store.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

‘Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie’ Re-Issue Is A Wild Visual High For Viewers

Courtesy: Shout! Factory

The screwball comedy is a lost art in today’s mainstream movie industry.  As a matter of fact, it is a lost art in the movie industry in whole.  At one point, great classic screwball comedies such as It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Some Like It Hot and other similar stories once made the movie industry great.  Today, it seems like overly dramatic works and brainless shoot-‘em-up action flicks run things across the board.  Thankfully, Shout! Factory will soon give audiences an alternative to that endless sea of cookie-cutter theatrical and home releases when it re-issues the classic 1980 stoner/screwball comedy Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie on Blu-ray.

For those who have never seen this completely outrageous production, it takes the screwball comedy to a whole new level.  Put simply, the hybrid of its screwball and stoner elements puts it into a category all its own; one that many have tried to emulate, but that few have succeeded at copying.  It is not a movie for children due to its drug and sexual content.  Because it is also its own brand of screwball/stoner comedy, it is also very much a niche production.  Even with that in mind, it is still a movie that any comedy fan should see at least once especially now that it will be re-issued next week, if only for that content, which is one of its key elements.  The movie’s story is just as important to note in examining the movie’s overall presentation and will be discussed later.  The bonus interview with Cheech Marin about the movie’s making rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is, obviously important in its own right.  All things considered, they make Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie one of this year’s top new DVD/BD re-issues.

Shout! Factory’s upcoming re-issue of the classic stoner/screwball comedy Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie is one of the most outrageous offerings of its type.  Few, if any, movies before or after have ever been able to equal the level of comedic output produced by this movie.  That is due in no small part to its content.  From raunchy bathroom humor to full-on adult jokes about drugs and sex to a completely out of this world visit from a UFO and more, the content in this movie hits on so many different comedic elements.  At the same time, the rapid fire delivery of all of the jokes (which are clearly products of their time) works alongside that vast range of comedic elements to leave viewers wondering what the duo will do next throughout the course of the movie’s 95-minute run time.  On the downside, there is so much going on that by the time the movie reaches its final act, it does have a slightly negative impact on the movie’s pacing.  Luckily though, that doesn’t happen until late in the movie’s run.  Keeping that in mind, the type and amount of content presented throughout Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie, while obviously not meant for children (and likely won’t reach everyone) makes it worth at least one watch as well as one of this year’s top new DVD/BD re-issues.  It is just one of the elements that makes this re-issue such a surprise hit.  The movie’s story is another key element that deserves to be discussed in examining the movie’s overall presentation.

The content at the heart of Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie forms the foundation of this movie’s entertainment.  One part stoner flick and one part screwball comedy, the combination of those elements’ content makes this raucous comedy one of the most original of its kind.  It is only one of the key elements that makes this movie stand so starkly apart from its counterparts past and present.  Its story is just as important to discuss in examining its overall presentation as its content.  The story, as Marin notes in the re-issue’s new bonus interview, may seem like it’s all over the place at first glance.  However, a closer watch shows it actually does follow a structured continuum of sorts.  What is really interesting is that though Marin provides the bonus interview (which will be discussed shortly), Tommy Chong is in fact the movie’s real star.  That is because in this story, viewers go along with Tommy and his friend Dwayne “Red” Mendoza (obviously Marin plays Mendoza here) while Cheech waits back at the pair’s house for his girlfriend Donna (Evelyn Guerrero—Blood In, Blood Out; The Toolbox Murders; …And The Earth Did Not Swallow Him) to come by.  Every now and then, audiences are taken back to check on Cheech during the course of the movie’s second and third act.  But by and large, Tommy Chong is the real star of this movie as he and “Mendoza” ride around town smoking lots of marijuana and getting into all kinds of mischief.  The content of those misadventures couples with the story to make the movie its own visual high for viewers.  Again, it won’t appeal to everyone, but those elements together will definitely entertain its key audiences.  Keeping this in mind, the movie’s story is not the last of its key elements.  The bonus interview with Marin that comes with the movie’s re-issue rounds out its most important elements.

The story and content presented in Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie are both pivotal to its overall presentation.  Both in themselves and collectively, they create a visual and cinematic experience unlike anything that has come before and after.  They are not its only important elements.  The bonus interview with Cheech Marin included in the movie’s upcoming re-issue rounds out its most important elements.  Marin discusses in his interview, which only runs maybe 10 minutes at the most, the approach that he and Tommy Chong took in writing the movie (yes, they wrote the movie’s story and it shows), battling with other creative forces to keep certain scenes in, the duo’s own career history and even that of one Paul Reubens (yes, Pee-Wee Herman) who makes an appearance in this movie and so much more.  The interview isn’t in-depth per se.  However, it does offer audiences new and old alike a new view on the movie, its creation, and what makes it one of those movies that stands the test of time.  When this is considered along with the movie’s story and its overall content, viewers will agree that regardless of their familiarity with the movie, it is unlike any other stoner or even screwball comedy out there and deserves at least one watch.  All things considered, it is one of this year’s top new DVD/BD re-issues.

Shout! Factory’s upcoming re-issue of Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie is one of this year’s top new DVD/BD re-issue.  Scheduled for release next Tuesday, June 13, it is unlike any other stoner and/or screwball comedy that has come before or after.  That is obvious in the movie’s outrageous content (which is only fitting for adult audiences) and its equally outrageous, yet somehow structured story.  The bonus interview with star Cheech Marin about the movie rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important to the movie in its own right, as has been discussed.  All things considered, they make Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie a surprisingly refreshing break from the endless sea of dramas and mindless action flicks currently filling America’s theaters.  Considering this, they combine to make the movie one of the year’s top new DVD/BD re-issues.  It can be pre-ordered online now direct via Shout! Factory’s online store.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

Shout! Factory To Re-Issue Two Classic Comedies Next Month

Courtesy: Shout! Factory

Shout! Factory is set to re-issue a pair of classic comedies on Blu-ray next month.

Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie is scheduled to be released Tuesday, June 13. In the second of the famed comic duo’s big screen offerings, Cheech has to deal with an angry neighbor all while dealing with losing his job.  He also meets an attractive young woman with whom he hopes to have some fun.

Tommy doesn’t miss out on the fun.  This time out, he meets  Cheech’s cousin ( played by Cheech Marin) and the pair ends up making its way around Hollywood, getting in plenty of trouble along the way.  There are mishaps at a music store, a brothel, a comedy club and many other places that will leave audiences in stitches.

The dual-pronged story presented in Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie is not its only key elements. Guest appearances by Edie McClurg, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson, John “Jambi” Paragon, Phil Hartman and a very young Paul Reubens add to the movie’s interest.

As if that is not enough, the movie also boasts a new interview with star Cheech Marin as bonus content.  An original theatrical trailer for the movie is also included with radio spots as additional bonus content.

Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie will retail for MSRP of $27.99 but can be pre-ordered online now via Shout! Factory’s online store for $22.99.

The second of the classic comedies set to be re-issued by Shout! Factory next month is Car Wash.  Richard Pryor leads an outstanding cast that plays the staff and customers of a Los Angeles car wash in this flick.

In this laugh riot comedy, audiences  are treated to the life in the day of a car wash in Los Angeles.  There is an attempted robbery, a chase with a man believed to be the “pop bottle bomber” and even an appearance by Pryor’s money hungry preacher “Wonder-Man,” who was based on a real life televangelist.  The movie is believed by some to be the forebear to Ice Cube’s Friday and Barbershop.

Car Wash will retail for MSRP of $27.99 but can be pre-ordered at a reduced price of $22.99 via Shout! Factory’s online store.
