Foul Play on DVD??

Anyone heard any plans about Foul Play being released on DVD.

It starred Chevy Chase, Goldie Hawn and Dudley Moore (and a creepy albino!) and was made in 1978.

Am I the only one that wants this on DVD?

yeah, that's the one that has that "ready to take a chance again" Barry Manilow song playing in like every scene. I've only seen crappy VHS copies of this and have been waiting for a dvd release. good stuff

Yep!

... and those two, really old ladies playing scrabble and using only dirty words!!

... and Dudley Moore hitting a single button to transform his common-looking apartment into a swinging bachelor pad complete with disco lights and blow-up dolls!!

I can't wait!

Another catalog title on my list for sure. Chevy & Goldie were solid gold in Foul Play & Seems Like Old Times. I'd love to see the old Chevy Chase Jane Seymour film Oh, Heavenly Dog too (a real guilty pleasure of mine).

Best Buy apparently won't have it until next week, but K-mart has it for $9.99, and its $7.50 shipped from DDD with the coupon sale
