I have the old edition as well but the new commentary track sounds interesting and I'm happy they're keeping the trivia track. We'll see.

Kind of tempted but I'm also kind of sick of double dipping Might have to wait a bit on this one...

Son of a bitch. Just finally broke down and bought the old disc. Don't think I'll end up double-dipping on this one.

Well this new transfer is anamorphic. I wouldn't have cared for this release, but I recently bought a 16X9 television so I'm an anamorphic freak now. I'll double dip on this one.

It looks like the commentary on the existing disc won't be carried over... unless I'm reading this incorrectly (??)

They call the commentaries on this Anchor Bay edition "all new".

I love Free Enterprise, so I'll probably double-dip. Besides, it's an anamorphic transfer, so that alone makes it enticing.

so i guess this got pushed back...no new date

from the anchor bay website

FREE ENTERPRISE (1998)

Two sci-fi/comic geeks get more than they bargained for when they befriend their idol, William "Capt. Kirk" Shatner and discover he is not quite the man they imagined him to be. From producer Mark Altman (THE SPECIALS) comes this hilarious comedy which will have a new DiviMax hi-def transfer with enough new extras to fill a 2 Disc Set!

Starring: Eric McCormack, William Shatner - Director: Robert Meyer Burnett

Wonder why it didn't say, "From producer Mark Altman (HOUSE OF THE DEAD)..." Actually, I love FREE ENTERPRISE, but couldn't resist!

I really loved this movie but for some reason I never bought the old release. So I'm definitely in.

Can't wait for this to come out. I remember breaking down and paying $31 for the first release. I think it was worth it. This hits a little too close to home for my friends and I. The movie is hoot if you're into anything like comics, Trek and Sci-Fi.
