I've been wanting and waiting for the 1984 comedy "Delivery Boys" for years - especially since it was announced to through Amazon last year!
Unfortunately, it wasn't. Originally released by New World/Pegasas, it wound up through Lakeshore/Spyglass, but I can't find any info on why it didn't come out on disc.

I fortunately found a VHS tape which I have tried to transfer (for my own use, of course) but I'd rather have a better copy.

Surely someone has information regarding this title?

If so, thanks in advance.

Only thing I know is that it was released on a budget DVD in the UK. Full screen and mediocre quality.

Maybe the quality is better than the VHS version I have.

Anyone in the UK have it?

I have it myself. Don't remember much, but it's nothing special. It's not remastered, so probably the same transfer as the VHS.

Wanna sell at a reasonable price?

Sorry, I never sell anything. But you can get it really cheap from Amazon.co.uk

I'm not sure how much those prices are in American currency.
I assume "all regions" means it will play OK here.

I'm not sure either. $6-$7 maybe. All region means it will play, but the TV system in Europe is different so it's encoded for PAL. All TVs in Europe accept both PAL and NTSC, but it seems only front projectors in the US accept PAL, and some DVD players are able to convert.

Thanks again. I found there are two sources listed that say they are in the U.S.A. and e'd them to see what the total cost in American money (including shipping here to Alabama) but have had no response from either yet.
