I have always loved this film and had worn out my old VHS copy. I decided to purchase this DVD from Music Magpie and I wasn’t disappointed. The DVD was in excellent condition as Music Magpie described. The extra’s that come with this DVD are excellent. The commentaries by both the two female leads are insightful along with the directors. The pull out that accompanies it again is riveting. It now seems so obvious, but this film influenced Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the film Serenity. This film is such a rare gem. You can count on one hand where the main characters of a film made in the 1980’s are women; which are equally strong, venerable, funny and very real. The budget for this film was only $700,000 but it doesn’t show at all. The re-mastering is excellent, but it you do not like the re-imagined cover on the DVD do not worry it is reversible and you can have the original instead. It is a fantastic movie and the only shame is that either Catherine Mary Stewart or Kelli Maroney never got a chance to display their terrific acting ability equally as well again.
